Mardenborough: At high speed, the car feels normal

Jann Mardenborough says that Nissan’s new LMP1 car may be unique in appearance, but drives in a similar manner to conventional high-downforce racing cars.
In an interview that aired on tonight’s episode of PitBored, the former GT Academy winner said: ”Everyone has big trust in Ben (Bowlby) and Nissan and the design and engineering team. The car, in high speed corners, feels very similar to a normal high-downforce car.”
The Carlin GP3 driver shared some tricks of the GT-R LM trade with Downforce Radio: ”In the slow speeds there’s a little bit of adaptation. You do have to take into consideration that you can’t trailbrake as much as you can in a rear-wheel drive car because you’ll lock the rears. So you have to sort of jump off the brake a little bit earlier than you normally would and get the car in a kind of neutral oversteery phase and pick up the throttle earlier to neutralise that and then really apply the final bit of steering lock in a slow speed corner”.
Mardenborough will drive the #23 Nissan GT-R LM NISMO at the Le Mans 24 Hours alongside Olivier Pla and Max Chilton.
