Nissan and GT Academy are making a big splash at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, with both Lucas Ordonez and Jann Mardenborough driving together in Greaves Motorsport’s LMP2 car. (We’ll have a post up tomorrow with links to all of the live coverage feeds you need to follow the race this weekend – stay tuned.)
They’re also hosting “NISMO FanZone”, a massive area for the public to see team drivers, enter to win helicopter tours, garage tours, and circuit tours of Circuit de la Sarthe, and experience the NISMO driver training labs and simulators.
Most importantly, for GT Academy 2013 hopefuls, the FanZone will host the first European GT Academy 2013 “Wild Card” competition. Similar to U.S. GT Academy’s “Racer X”, an eligible member of the public with the fastest lap at the event will score a direct ticket to the French GT Academy 2013 National Finals.
You can find the NISMO FanZone at Le Mans’ new karting area near the track. Good luck to all GTPlanet members participating in the competition!
