The efforts of Nissan Australia have given their fruits and
despite the announcement of NISMO which only considered the presence of
a Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 in the Blancpain GT Series as a result of the development
a new GT3 of face-to-2018, finally, it would be two units of the GT3 japanese present in
the Endurance Cup throughout the season 2017. This second Nissan GT-R
NISMO GT3 will be sporting the race number #22, and it will be run by RJN Motorsport.
You will be enrolled in the category Pro Cup, the Endurance Cup and will be piloted
by Matt Simmons, Matt Parry and Struan Moore.
Matt Simmons is another of the products of the Nissan GT
Academy. The winner of this particular contest in 2015, the australian rider
lived his debut season in Europe in 2016, although it is now facing its first big
program in the old continent to ascend to the category Pro Cup after competing
in its first year of ‘rookie’ in the Pro-Am Cup. Under this new requirement will play the
five rounds of the Endurance Cup next to Matt Parry and Struan Moore, two pilots
they made their debut in the ranks of Nissan, but have experience in other
disciplines and even within the own GT.
Struan Moore is not a novice in the world of GT. Of
in fact, already participated throughout the season 2016 in the Endurance Cup next to
Alex Fontana and Andrew Watson at the controls of one of the McLaren 650S GT3 of
Garage 59 as a member of the McLaren GT Academy. For his part, the experience
Matt Parry is much more limited, that up to now the date has
competed in single-seaters. After getting to the GP3, Parry has refocused his career
and after making his debut one of the McLaren of Strakka Racing and to participate in the ‘rookie
test’ WEC with Aston Martin, now will compete with Nissan.
