2023 Nissan Motorsports Customer Support

So, what does Nissan have in-store for its motorsports division in 2023? The brand will once again be competing in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and the Super GT GT500. Adding to its list of competitions, however, the NISMO Racing Division will begin a customer racing program as well.

This new program will provide technical support for competitive drivers of the Nissan Z GT4. This isn’t a completely new program, as they have previously done the same for customer teams driving the GT-R NISMO GT3, as well as other Nissan models. For those who are part of customer racing teams, or who are interested, the customer racing program classes are as follows.
