Tincknell: I considered asking Jason Plato for advice

From the Downforce Radio website:

Harry Tincknell is confident that Nissan will be able to compete well at next month’s Le Mans 24 Hours, but revealed he was anxious about the concept of the GT-R LM NISMO prior to his first test the car.

The 23-year-old, who was one of the drivers to lead Jota Sport to an LMP2 class win at La Sarthe last year, told Downforce Radio: ”Of course, there was a bit of anxiety beforehand, because I was thinking ‘Am I going to be as good in a front-wheel drive, front-engined car compared to a rear-wheel drive, rear engined car that I’ve been driving my whole career?’. I thought ‘Am I going to have to call Jason Plato and ask for some tips?’.

However, the Brit believes that the unusual design concept of Nissan’s new LMP1 challenger is not short of downforce, adding:”Luckily, the car, while it is very different, it actually drives very similar to a conventional racing car. There’s some benefits and some downsides to it, and we’re just trying to maximise the benefits and minimise the downsides. I can honestly say that in corners like the Porsche Curves at Le Mans, it is going to be very strong. The downforce is very very good”.
Tincknell will drive the #22 Nissan GT-R LM NISMO in the Le Mans 24 Hours, alongside Michael Krumm and fellow Brit Alex Buncombe.
