  • July 27, 2015 : Super GT 2015

    The first half of the 2015 season I spent testing and racing all around the world, including the N24 with Nismo and the Le Mans 24h. Now I'm back in Japan for the remainder of the Super GT season. Yesterday I tested in Sugo for the first time after a long absence. While I was away the pace of the cars has increased significantly, so I was a bit worried to get to grips with it at first. Improved downforce and engine power combined with continuous tire development have brought the Nissan GT-R's victory at the last two rounds, and lap times down even further.

  • June 26, 2015 : New Stilo ST5 Zero Helmet out-performed my expectations at Le Mans 24H

    For a racing driver their crash helmet is a very personal, piece of equipment. Some are literally in ‘love’ with their helmets and its design, while others don’t seem to care too much about it, it is simply an essential tool of our trade.

  • June 16, 2015 : Le Mans 24H 2015

    It was the big weekend for our LMP1 project at Nissan and its was an exciting 2 weeks in Le Mans to say the least. Since I drove the car the first time in November last year, the entire team has worked relentlessly to prepare 3 cars for the big race. It was a tough schedule and sleep was little but our main target was to bring at least one car to the finish line. And that was what we achieved in the end! So a big thank you to the entire team for that immense effort.

  • May 19, 2015 : 24H of Nurburgring

    After our VLN Race a few weeks ago we were very good prepared for this years 24h challenge of the Ring. It didn't start to great for us though in qualifying as because of a penalty our fastest laps were canceled and we could not make the top 30 shoot out. So P31 it was. Nevertheless the grid position at this long race is not that important and wouldn't in the end influence the final result.

  • April 27, 2015 : VLN Race R2 Nürburgring

    A busy testing schedule kept me flying all over the globe in the last couple of month. But with the Nürburgring 24h race approaching, we went to race there last weekend. Needless to say that it was a difficult weekend for us after the tragic events of VLN R1.
