Super Taikyu 2010: Debut for Team Daishin’s NISMO GT-R RC ST1 Spec Nissan GT-R at Okayama

September 5th, 2010

NISMO have succeeded in spawning their first NISMO GT-R RC fielding race team with Team Daishin accepting the reins to their new R35 for the debut at round 5 of the Super Taikyu 2010 Championship series at Okayama Circuit, Japan.

The weekend started well for the team proving that the GT-R RC is already potent so early in it’s career as they managed to lap third fastest in qualifying and finishing third in the qualifying race behind the well established Petronas Z4M BMW cars.

Come race time however, hotter than expected track temperatures saw tire choices become critical. While the team was running strong in 3rd and 4th positions for most of the race, at lap 94 a front left tire blowout caused the GT-R to leave the track. While the team was able to make it back to pits, the time it cost was too great and they were forced to accept a 6th position in class finish (21st overall).

While the result is not the best the team is happy with the amount of data they collected on their debut outing and looks forward to the next round.
