JRM announces new Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 entry
JRM Racing’s Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 will be heading to the track next month, following the announcement of a confirmed entry from the group. The striking car enjoys a huge fan base and is now entered in round nine of SRO Motorsports Group’s British GT Series at Donington Park on 23rd and 24th September.
This Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 has started its life in the JRM workshop. Last seen on the track in 2013 for Blancpain, JRM Racing has been relentless in its pursuit of race-winning speed. The Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 has undergone more than 300,000km of development and the new car features various evolutions to make it easy to drive.
Jason King – managing director of JRM Group Ltd said; “Getting back on the track with a newly built Nismo GT-R GT3 specification Nissan, driven by a new, young and talented team is what we have been waiting for. The past few years JRM has focused on our applied engineering and assembly manufacturing, working with major OEMs and clients around the world. The time was right to unleash the team and set the challenge to get back on the track with a car, garage support and drivers that we feel has serious podium potential. I look forward to great successes over the coming races, under the careful watch of Elliot Dason-Barber, our Technical Director.”
Taking the wheel at Donington Park will be two talented young drivers – Charlie Fagg and Ben Green. Fresh off the back of a spate of podium finishes in GT4 including a win for Fagg in his debut British GT GT4, securing a double victory at Spa earlier this year in the Ebor GT Maserati, the drivers are ready for their next step, starting their GT3 career in a Nissan GT-R NISMO with the concrete support of the JRM team.
“After a successful ten years on and off the track, we felt it was the right commercial decision to use our wealth of experience and talent around us to create a fruitful and meaningful Young Drivers’ programme at JRM Group Ltd. Ben and Charlie are the perfect candidates for our first recruits onto the scheme, and we look forward to them embracing experiences on and off the track and developing a winning strategy,” added Sally Povolotsky JRM Group’s commercial director.
