Gran Turismo GT Academy Driver Wins - Spinout

The Nissan breezed into the lead and never looked back.

Nov 15, 2011

The game player to real race driver transition is complete as ’10 GT Academy winner Jordan Tresson co-drove the RJN Motorsport Nissan 370Z to the class GT4 victory at the challenging Total 24 Hours of Spa endurance race. Jordan and co-pilots Alex Buncombe and Chris Ward were able to tame the ever-challenging Spa track and the impossible-to-predict Ardennes weather where others succumbed to the elements.

The Nissan 370Z held the lead for the first three hours of the race, but then Lotus took the lead when a damper problem required Nissan to visit the pits. A couple hours later, a rear puncture further delayed the Nissan, but the fight-back was well and truly on.

After a very long, dark night, the Nissan surfaced from some heavy rain in second place, and a few hours later the lead Lotus retired out on the track. The Nissan breezed into the lead and never looked back, taking a comfortable win after 24 hours of hard racing.

This shift in temperature may have to do with the Esflow Concept that Nissan featured at the ’11 Geneva Motor Show.
