FIA GT 2010: Swiss Racing Team’s First Tests of Their New GT-R

February 10, 2010

The Swiss Racing Teams brand new Nismo FIA GT1 Nissan GT-Rs are in Europe and the three team drivers were able to get them out on the circuit for their first test.

The test took place in Portugal at the Algarve Circuit and even in the poor weather conditions the drivers Karl Wendlinger, Henri Moser and Max Nilsson were able to set a good pace.

“Both NISSAN’s are perfect, and the drivers are handling them very well … Karl Wendlinger and Henri Moser are working together very well. It is perfect that they are almost of the same height, which will be an advantage in the driver change.”

– Team Director, Othmar Welti

For the second car, driver Max Nilsson shared the cockpit with potential fourth teammate Cesar Campanico and also showed outstanding performance. The final decision on the fourth driver for the Swiss Racing Team has not been made yet however.

While testing and car setup could not be fully completed due to the bad weather, the team will get another chance at the next test at Paul Ricard HTT circuit in France on February the 21st – 22nd.
