Nissan/NISMO Japanese drivers (Tsugio Matsuda, Mitsunori Takaboshi, Tomonobu Fujii) will participate in VLN 5.
This must be a sign that Nissan will make a full factory participation by GTR GT3 in the Nürburgring 24h race.

I've put together a little race report. It's not much as I wasn't there but it should still give a bit of an idea of what happened: https://www.gt-report.com/2018/08/23...green-machine/

A great experience, hard to find words actually (especially english words).

We arrived around 8 o'clock and went to the T4-Stands for the training. To hear and see the cars coming into the big braking zone of T1 was stunning. I didn't like the M6Gt3 from TV pictures, but this car is a beast on downshifts Also great to see cars braking like 100m earlier than Gt3's. The speed-difference is so huge in the braking zone. I was really surprised, again something you can't tell from TV pictures.
After the training we went to the boxes and later walked the grid. For the race start we went back to the stands and stayed for an hour or so before we went to Brünnchen. There we walked different places by foot and stayed here and there and just enjoyed everything. The weather was wonderful and everybody was really chilled. When I first saw the cars dropping down from Wippermann, Eschbach into Brünnchen I thought they have to loose grip, it just looked too fast to my eyes in that section After a while i got used to it, but I will never forget the first sight

Now you know why people keep coming back race after race. Again this weekend and after having to miss VLN5, I'm very much looking forward to it!

Here's our gallery from VLN5: https://www.gt-report.com/2018/08/30...machine-pt-ii/

Fantastic stuff, and you did very well in English!

Television is wonderful to be able to see races, it makes it easy. But it takes away so much of the spectacle. The noise, the physics of seeing the cars squirm around and to flash past.

Can anyone recommend any good websites that give info on travelling to the N24 (preferably websites in English)?
In 2019 LM24 and N24 are only a week apart, and as it's our tenth LM we're planning on doing both in the same trip, but I'm not sure what campsite etc might be best and all that.

Thanks in advance!

The 2019 car with the Falken / Porsche camo livery looks awesome! I really hope Spark makes a model of either this or the Manthey version of this livery.

I'd rather see a real livery, this camouflage is getting out of hand.

Normally I'd agree, but in this case I kinda like it. Considering Falken's... let's say "consistency" in liveries, this one actually feels kinda fresh.
