Following on from the team’s top five finish at Circuit Paul Ricard in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup, Motul Team RJN now heads to Belgium to begin preparations for the longest race of the season.
The Spa-Francorchamps test day tomorrow will give the team important data in preparation for the 24 hour classic scheduled to be held on July 29-30. Both the team’s No.22 and No.23 Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 entries will hit the track from 9.00 to 12.00, and again from 13.00 to 18.00.
“Any day you get to drive around Spa-Francorchamps is not a bad day at the office – especially on board the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3,” NISMO athlete, Alex Buncombe said.
“We had a really strong race at Paul Ricard and everyone at Motul Team RJN is really looking forward to the test.
“It is an important part of our preparation for the 24 Hour later this month. While the test doesn’t give you an insight as to what the place is like at 3:00am in the morning when its raining, there are still lots of lessons to be learned.
“We’ve made some great strides with the car this year and I’m looking forward to working on our package in Belgium.”
Buncombe will join his regular teammates Lucas Ordóñez and Katsumasa Chiyo aboard the No.23 entry with Matt Parry, Struan Moore and Matt Simmons in the No.22 for Motul Team RJN.
