2016 Program

First of all, my apologies to everyone for not updating my blog for a while but I have been rather busy enjoying my GT-R Nismo N Attack...

Since joining NISMO in 1998 I have either raced in Super GT or the FIA GT1 Championships and I have been deeply involved in the development of the cars for these championships and fought hard to win titles with them. The titles we have won as a team and a driver are something I am hugely proud of. Late last year we decided it was time to step down from regular driving duties in Super GT but I will remain with NISMO as an Ambassador and race for them at the Nurburgring 24 Hours in the mighty GT-R – Nismo GT3 car.

In 2016 I will also attend all the Super GT races and offer my advice and support to the whole NISMO family. I am very grateful to NISMO for giving me the opportunity to pass on my knowledge and look forward to helping all the teams and drivers using the GT-R.

I can’t wait to get back to the Green Hell for the 6h Qualifying race and then the 24h race. Last year we managed to finish in P9, and of course we want to improve on that result this year! It will be a tough challenge with so much development going on with all the GT3 cars around the world. But I am confident we have a great car with the GT-R Nismo GT3 car as always.

So I will see many of you at the circuits!



まず初めに、しばらくの間ブログの更新をしていないままですみません。GT-R Nismo N Attackを楽しんだりと忙しかったです...

1998年にニスモで参戦して以来、スーパーGTやFIA GT1選手権に参戦しこれらの選手権のために車の開発に深く関与しタイトルを獲得するために懸命に戦ってきました。チームとして、またドライバーとして獲得したタイトルは、大いに誇りに思っています。昨年末、スーパーGTのレギュラードライバーの業務を降りる時だと決めましたが、僕はアンバサダーとしてNISMOに残り、強大なGT-R-Nismo GT3でニュルブルクリンク24時間レースに参戦します。


グリーンヘルでの6時間の予選レース、その後の24時間レースを待ちきれない思いです。昨年はP9でフィニッシュを迎えましたが、もちろん今年はさらに上を目指します!世界のGT3カーで開発がとても進んでいることから厳しい挑戦になります。しかし、いつもですがGT-R NISMO GT3カーは素晴らしい車であると確信しています。
