it Is difficult to use another word that is not failure in relation to the project of Nissan with the GT-R LM NISMO. The prototype LMP1 of the japanese brand came barely 24 Hours of Le Mans and The Sarthe rolled to the rhythm of the LMP2 during his brief participation. It is evident that the project is still in its infancy and that in the future you should be able to be at the height of its rivals, but for the moment, the GT-R LM NISMO is a real fiasco. Yes, this situation is for Nissan is the price of innovation.
so Much so that Nissan in connection with the Go Pro have launched a documentary called ‘The Art of Innovation’. A small document of 26 minutes is about all the development and work of the technicians of the NISMO up to his debut in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, as well as participation in La Sarthe. Despite the poor performance of the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO, that perhaps sinned of too innovative, this video is for put in context the work titanic that have made all the parts to not end up with this feeling in the bones.
Only time will tell if ‘The Art of Innovation’ is just becoming ‘The Art of Success’ or what is the same, in a vehicle competitive. But for the moment, there is much work to do this. It is worth remembering that Nissan decided not to compete in the rest of the test of the WEC season 2015 to focus on performing numerous tests with the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO. In addition, Darren Cox is out of the project, being one of the big drivers, and visible head of this new adventure which so far is not being positive. But by innovation, which is not.
