Nissan Academy takes the GT-R to Nurburgring

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

Silverstone International instructors have crossed the threshold of the concluding parts of a Pan-European driving course to unravel the Nissan GT-R to no less than 1,300 pre-sold buyers.

Following the 19-date run at Germany's Nurburgring is the victorious introduction of the experience at the home of the British Grand Prix in August, where more than five hundred owners got a first-time hold on the super saloon vehicle.

The two preliminary phases of the innovative "Best in Class" Nissan Academy gave the customers the opportunity to experience the exceptional performance of the GT-R as well as study some important superior driving methods.

Jonathan Tait, Sales & Marketing Director, Silverstone International, explained, "Half of those who attended had been on other drive experiences, but 98 per cent of them were unanimous that the Academy was their best one yet."

This is not your average car and this is not your average driving experience.

Nissan has set its sights high with this breakthrough customer focused launch; in partnership with Silverstone those ambitions are being delivered in spades," added Darren Cox, European Brand Promotion Manager for Nissan Europe.

More sessions will be held in 2009 including the opportunity to take a full race license test. Nissan together with Silverstone are into a bigger presentation of driving experiences for Passionate Sports car drivers that will come out in 2009.
