Nissan GTR sets new laptime


Evo Magazine are reporting that the latest incarnation of the GTR, the slightly-tweaked 2010 model, has broken its own Nordschleife record with a new 7m27.56s laptime.

The final application of lacquer was 'haphazard'

This is important news to, erm, somebody. Probably a guy at Nissan, or a forum junkie. For us mere mortals, the only news is that we've been forced to sit in the Nordschleife car park like lemons, waiting for Nissan to finish up and give us our Touristfahrt session back. Apparently Nissan were keen to show that no foul play was at hand, so the entire test session was done with reporters present.

This 'completely stock' car can be seen above wearing optional forged lightweight rims, and no doubt a set of Pagid 29's behind those calipers...

Because there was some dust on the track (ask Land Motorsport about that) Nissan will be trying to beat the time later this month. The Spec-V will also be attempting a time later this year.

Tonight's session was aborted after the sighting lap revealed rain was indeed falling from the sky. And so, at least, I got a few laps in. Cheers...

BTG is NOT a massive operation; it's just me, my camera and my computer. And a lot of help from my friends and family. Thanks!
