Giagwave secures Nissan deal

Gigawave Motorsport has been named as the team that will give the new NISMO-developed Nissan Skyline GT-R its debut in the FIA GT Championship during the 2009 campaign.

The new car has been developed with the new 2010 regulations in mind and with the Japanese marquee having one eye on the planned FIA GT World Championship.

The GT-R will now take part in four events in 2009 running as a non-championship entry to allow NISMO to 'check the performance of cars to be sold to racing teams competng in the FIA GT1 class'.

As part of the partnership, each party will provide one of the drivers with the line-up expected to see NISMO's Michael Krumm partnered with Gigawave's Darren Turner.

The announcement of the NISMO programme comes shortly after Gigawave received news that it has secured an entry into the Le Mans 24 Hours this summer with its Aston Martin DBR9.

It remains to be seen what the impact of the NISMO deal will be on the Aston Martin FIA GT programme, which went from strength-to-strength last season in what was the team's first full year of competition.

I don't think people expect stepney to work at Tesco. What people do expect is that when you are unhappy with your job you just leave! You don't give a dosier to your mate/exmate at another team, you don't slag the company of in the press, and you don't (apparently) try and scupper the team by messing with the fuel tank. However this talk means nothing to stepney, he like many bankers don't care about doing the right thing!
