They (Sumo) were bought by a company called JR Motorsport who prepare Race Evo X's and rally cars among other things, based in a multi million pound facility in East Sussex. Id highly doubt Nismo would pick someone who didnt know what they were doing!

Autosport magazine has two news items, one says that Nissan have signed a new team to run their GT1 car and immediately below that another item says that Mr Stepney has resigned as a Director.

Coincidence?

We shall see before too long. I suspect their decision making had something to do with who would foot the bill on such short notice.

I agree, and i'll reserve judgment until the first race but thats a huge leap for any team to take (competing in an FIA International Series no less) let alone one with very little national race experience.

JR Motorsport used to run in Time Attack is i remember correctly?!?!

http://www.jrm-group.com/servicesmenu.html - (not yet updated, probably a new site will be built for the GT1 team). They have run Group N Mitsubishi rally cars on behalf of Mitsubishi and built a fairly wild drag racing Evo:
