Later this summer, the electric hybrid Nissan ZEOD RC will race in the Le Mans 24 Hours in the “Garage 56” category. This distinction is reserved for innovative technology, like the ZEOD RC, and while it won’t be able to “win,” we’re sure it will put on quite an impressive show.
To prepare for this race, Nissan has started track testing the ZEOD RC. Recently, the car spent a few days at the Snetterton track in the UK. Behind the wheel was Nissan GT Academy winner, Wolfgang Reip. Later this month, Nissan will move to the Paul Ricard track in southern France and will be joined by another Academy winner, Lucas Ordonez.
“Testing is probably one of the most important processes of all the development of the car because it’s only when you test that you see the result of all your work and that you see what you need to improve,” Reip said.
Nissan will gather data from the test runs to make any necessary changes and get the ZEOD RC in peak racing condition.
