Super Taikyu test - Nissan Fairlady Z shakedown

We conducted the shakedown of the brand-new Nissan Fairlady Z racecar the day following delivery from NISMO at the Suzuka Circuit. In class 3, the competition is four other Z33 Zs, RX7s, NSXs, and an M3. The cars are blazingly fast despite low power - a little over 300hp. With the car in the as-delivered suspension setup/height, we were able to get a time of 2:18.8 within a few laps.

The next item on my schedule is the Fuji Speedway race with FCJ, on March 31 and April 1. We have two test days prior to the race weekend, and I am certain that I will be posting a much better result report here compared to the season opener at Suzuka.
