Nissan is set to do battle across the globe this week in a huge weekend of motorsport in Super GT, the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship and the British GT Championship.

The Super GT championship fight heads to Fuji Speedway for the biggest race of the year conducted over 500 miles. Ronnie Quintarelli and Tsugio Matsuda have their sights set on repeating their victory from earlier this year – at the 300km, round two event – at the home of the NISMO Festival.

The Italian/Japanese combination currently sit third in the championship, just four points off the title lead.

Daiki Sasaki and Jann Mardenborough will also be out to continue their impressive form, They have scored points in the past three rounds and were the best-performing Nissan at Suzuka and the Chang International Circuit.

The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship visits Road America – returning to the venue where the ESM team scored Nissan’s first modern-era IMSA victory last year.

The Nissan Motorsport squad in Australia will look to continue its strong recent form as they race under lights for the first time at Sydney Motorsport Park.

And, fresh from an impressive run at the Spa 24 Hour and the Spa round of the British GT Championship, Struan Moore, Jordan Witt and the RJN Motorsport team will do battle at Brands Hatch.

Both the Super GT and British GT races will be live streamed on NISMO.tv and NISMO.com.
