MOTUL TEAM RJN AIM FOR RICARD RETURN TO FORM

Motul Team RJN heads to one of its happy hunting grounds in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup this weekend at Circuit Paul Ricard in the south of France.

The Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 has been a strong performer at Le Castellet in the past two seasons, winning the race overall in 2015 with Alex Buncombe, Katsumasa Chiyo and Wolfgang Reip and making a strong charge through to fifth place in the corresponding event last year.
Last year’s battle included an epic drive from Lucas Ordóñez who made up 26 positions in his first stint after Mitsunori Takaboshi was spun at the final corner.

The 2015 win in France was one of the milestone results for Nissan’s 2015 championship victory.

“I really can’t wait to get to Paul Ricard. It’s our favorite track for sure,” Buncombe said.

“The Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 really suits Paul Ricard perfectly with the long straights. We’ve had really good success there over the past couple of years. Most memorably, 2015 where we won the race overall. We’re feeling strong here.

“It’s been a tough start to this season and I really want to score some good points there and look forward to Spa as well, that’s the big one of the season.”

NISMO drivers Buncombe, Chiyo and Ordóñez will combine aboard the No. 23 GT-R while Nissan GT Academy winner Matt Simmons will again team up with Matt Parry and Struan Moore aboard the No. 22 Motul Team RJN entry.

This weekend’s Paul Ricard round of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup will again be shown live on NISMO TV on YouTube.
