Black Team rejoins GT Open with Nissan brand
Nissan will make its debut in the International GT Open as two GT-R GT3 will enter the championship under the banner of Italian squad Black Team.
We have worked very hard to get to this deal and I am thrilled to be back to the International GT Open, which will be the core of our 2014 racing programme, with such great cars. For us, who had always been linked to the Prancing Horse, it will be a big change, but we are thrilled and determined to do well. – said team owner Giancristiano Cavalleri.
The 2014-specs cars will be prepared in Black Team’s headquarters in Seriate, near Bergamo, under the supervision of Gianfranco Bielli and with official support from JRM. They will hit the track for the first time at Winter Series event in Barcelona, on March.
Black Team has been a regular GT Open contender since the series’ inception in 2006, mostly under its previous denomination (EdilCris Racing Team), clinching five race wins.
