Have you ever wondered what was faster, a man in a wingsuit or the Nismo Nissan 370Z? Nismo heads to Switzerland and pits Germany's 2012 Nissan GT Academy Champion, Peter Pyzera against the world-renowned BASE jumper Dave Barlia to find out. Pyzera maneuvered the Nismo Z against treacherous Swiss Alps road while the wingsuited Barlia descended from 4,501 feet at an average speed of 130mph. There's no reset button in real life. By using the Jukeride analysis tool Nismo accurately monitored biometric and telematics data from the wingsuit athlete. Other advanced technology includes Nissan's In-Body machine, which analyzes body composition. The Brainwave Monitor trains the mind to so focus and relax simultaneously, a Batak console improves reaction times, and a race simulator allows Nismo athletes to practice on any track in the world.

"That was absolutely amazing, I could see Dave up above me and I just had to concentrate and get in the zone to beat him down. Afterwards we looked at the data we gathered from wearing the biometric harnesses, which monitored my biometric data, and I could see when I was totally focused. While this is fun, it is serious business - it not only improves my performance but is invaluable in helping me prepare for my next race," says Nismo athlete Pyzera.

Going into its fifth season, GT Academy was created by Nissan and Playstation to unite the digital world and real life racing. Ultimately, this will give many aspiring race drivers a shot in the world of Nismo racing. This is only the first in a series of short films that Nismo will be showcasing the spirit of Nismo cars and its athletes.
