Nissan Europe has today issued a press release detailing the campaigns their three GT Academy graduates will be driving in the 2012 season.
While last year we reported on a statement from Signatech Nissan’s team boss that Jordan Tresson would be joining Lucas Ordoñez at the team, Nissan’s announcement today says that Lucas has joined Greaves Motorsport. He will run an LMP2 campaign in the European Le Mans Series in their Zytek Nissan alongside Tom Kimber-Smith (who will be defending this title) and Alex Brundle. Lucas will also be driving the Le Mans 24 Hours for the team alongside Alex and his father Martin Brundle.
Jordan will indeed be driving for the Signatech team in 2012 in the FIA World Endurance Championship and will also have a seat in the Le Mans 24 Hours. The newest European GT Academy graduate Jann Mardenborough will be again driving for RJN Motorsport in a season of the Blancpain Endurance Series, driving the new Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3. There is no news yet on the 2012 schedule for GT Academy USA graduate Bryan Heitkotter. The full Nissan press release may be read here.
GTPlanet wishes all the GT Academy drivers and teams the best of luck and all of their opponents a safe 2012.
