Crazy-wicked GT1 class Sumo Power GT-R hits the track. Tokyo is safe for now, but the motorsports community better brace for impact. Fully race-prepped Nissan GT-Rs built to the new-for-2010 FIA GT1 World Championship rulebook were seen stretching their legs at France's iconic Paul Ricard Circuit. The GT-Rs recently appeared at a press conference held at the Automobile Club de France officially launching the new-for-2010 FIA GT1 World Championship. In rapid-fire fashion, the combatants were unveiled on the Place Vendome, located in the heart of Paris. The competing marques include Aston Martin, Chevrolet, Ford, Lamborghini, Maserati and Nissan. Nissan will be represented by Sumo Power GT and Swiss Racing Team, with each team running two cars.

Among the six manufacturer representatives who spoke at the conference, Nismo president and Nissan Motor's Global Motorsports program director Yuichi Sanada said, "We are very excited about Nissan returning to a world championship after nearly 20 years away. The FIA GT1 World Championship is an ideal venue for Nissan to showcase its technology globally through the participation of its iconic model, the Nissan GT-R. Our partner teams, Sumo Power GT and Swiss Racing Team, are also excited about racing the Nissan GT-R at circuits around the world. We are looking forward to the inaugural race in Abu Dhabi in April."
