Damn it Nissan! Do something conventional!, something a lot of us want you to do!

I really REALLY don't hope they create a One-Make Support series with the Juke-R!

Basically only engineblock, headers and a part of the chassis that contained the a-pillars and the roofline.

From that aspect I like both GTE and GT3 better, as they are closer to a production car.
I think you are thinking of the GT500 class in SuperGT/JGTC which matches your description to a tee whereas no ACO class by the name of GT1 does. There was no GT1 in 1999 as the class formerly known by that name and which had basically become full prototypes any way had become LMGTP and the class below that was still (to my knowledge) known as GT2. Even then I'm fairly certain at no stage between 1999 and now has there been a class in ACO racing that allowed tube frame silhouettes.

As to the nissan announcement I'll think it is something in particular when nissan say it is something in particular whilst quietly keeping my fingers crossed that it is a P1

An important point to make is that the announcement will be streamed live by Radio Le Mans. Why would Nissan tell RLM and invite them over just to announce a DTM or Super GT project?

I'm 90% sure this is WEC related.

Given history I expect them to do something sportscar related that I don't immediately like, then come around to - but ultimately wish was a P1 project.
Hmm, soon as I saw that tweet I immediately thought that it's not going to be a LMP1 programme. Something left field perhaps?

A Nismo Juke RX car???

As long as it isn't the WTCC.....that would be such a waste.

None of this info is true. They aren't streaming it live, merely covering it on MWM the next day. It's going to happen in the middle of the night European time if the announcement is in Japan is it not? They certainly aren't going over there for it.


BUT they are flagging it up on their site. It would appear they've been given a heads up about the announcement and that it likely applies to them. So I'm certainly hoping it's at least something sportscars related. P1 the dream scenario.

I'd love to see the GTR move to GTE in all honesty, twin turbo V6 and all.

I'm still betting on a Nissan One-Make Support series for WEC.

Too late to get that off the ground for a full 2013 season, though...

Formula Renault 3.5 reverting back to Nissan and becoming a Delta Wing series for 2014?

What about a P2 customer program ? Nissan chassis + engine. Would that be possible under the future P2 rules ? I guess so, like the HPD program.

MWM have tweeted this:

"Listen in on Tuesday morning 01:00 GMT we'll cover it live"

They must believe (or know) it is sporstcar related otherwise they would not cover it in this way....

Yeah, I'd agree. They wouldn't cover it if it wasn't Sportscar related??

They do other things as well and Nissan are a frequent sponsor of theirs, so it's possible that it's not connected.

If it is sports car related, 56th garage 2014?
