FIA GT1: Nissan GT-R Improves in Pre Qualifying

April 30th, 2010

Thanks to the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud, it’s an entirely new Silverstone Circuit where the FIA GT1 teams will be racing this weekend. So far in practicing and pre-qualifying the GT-R has shown improvements over it’s Abu Dhabi pace.

In pre-qualifying the #23 GT-R of team Sumo Power GT was 7th fastest overall well within reach of the extremely potent #34 Maserati MC12.

Qualifying and the main even are to come this weekend so fingers crossed that the GT-Rs have a good and incident free race!
