Nissan GT-R LM NISMO to return in 2016- and NISMO is hiring

We reported earlier that the GT-R LM NISMO will return to race in the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2016. The team has been working hard to address the technical issues faced at Le Mans in June and is in the middle of a comprehensive test and development program to prepare the new car to race against the tough competition it faces in the LM P1 class.

But as part of the development program, a recruitment drive has taken place to provide the race team with additional expertise and support, including the appointment of Michael Carcamo, who has transferred from Nissan Mexico to NISMO to share the heavy load on Ben Bowlby’s shoulders. Mike Carcamo takes the role of Team Principal, a position previously filled by Bowlby.

Nissan’s innovative LM P1 racer completes a test program at COTA in September 2015.

Numerous changes have been made to the car since Le Mans in order to make it more raceworthy. The team completed a two-day test at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas last week with Harry Tincknell and Olivier Pla at the wheel. Although running without KERS and new bespoke tire specifications, the car went significantly faster than it previously had at COTA and did not experience any significant reliability issues.
