Nismo to field a solid team for Le Mans 24 Hours

Article by Anita Panait, on May 13, 2013

Nismo will field its Ambassador and Super GT racer Michael Krumm as well as GT Academy winners and Nismo athletes Lucas Ordonez and Jann Mardenborough at the upcoming Le Mans 24 Hours. Krumm, Ordonez and Mardenborough will pilot a Greaves Motorsport Zytek-Nissan in the LMP2 class of the racing event.

The LMP2 class boasts of 22 entry cars, 15 of which are powered by the Nismo-tuned Nissan VK45DE V8 engine. Since the LMP2 is considered as the toughest class in the Le Mans 24 Hours this year, Nismo would not take chances and will field a strong lineup. Ordonez was a podium finisher in the 2011 edition of the Le Mans 24 Hours, his first attempt on the event.

Mardenborough, meanwhile narrowly missed out on a British GT title in 2012. He moved into the FIA Formula 3 Championship this year to accelerate his learning curve and get him ready for the challenges of driving an LMP2 car at Le Mans. Providing real-time support to Ordonez and Mardenborough is a veteran Nismo driver – Krumm. He is regarded as the perfect mentor and teammate for Ordonez and Mardenborough, as he still hungers for a win at Le Mans.
