TechSport Racing announced today that the team will be running the Nissan Z GT4 in the SRO Pirelli GT4 America Series. The Alton, VA-based team has a long history of running the Nissan 370Z in SRO’s TC America class, which made the team a natural to run this all-new Nissan Z GT4 machine.
“We are thrilled to be the first customer team to run the new Z GT4 car in competition in the United States,” said team owner Kevin Anderson. “The car combines the best of the previous-generation Z with the latest design and engineering upgrades. Nissan has absolutely nailed the look and function of this car. It is a masterpiece.”
SRO GT4 America fields more than 30 cars in the class and represents some of the most exciting racing that SRO has to offer.
“TechSport Racing is extremely excited to be a part of the introduction of this magnificent car to such a competitive class,” said team owner Deb Popolizio. “The level of commitment that Nissan has demonstrated to perfecting this car for the track pretty much guarantees its success.”
The all-new Nissan Z GT4 sports a silhouette that combines a perfect amount of nostalgia and new age sleek design. Under the hood is a powerful 3.0-liter twin turbo engine with 450 horsepower, backed by a six-speed sequential transmission.
Z1 Motorsports, one of the world's largest distributor of Z parts, will be supporting TechSport’s efforts in this upcoming season.
