Nissan is represented this year for the first time by KCMG. The Hong Kong-based team has taken over the flag from RJN Motorsport and is leaving no stone unturned to bring Nissan its second Spa 24 Hours victory – the brand having won the race in 1991 with the Skyline R32 GT-R.
KCMG is going all in this year: A full-season GT3 assault on the Intercontinental GT Challenge and the Nürburgring 24 Hours in addition to the FIA WTCR are just a few of the programs Paul Ip’s team has running in 2019.
At the Bathurst 12 Hour KCMG showed itself to be a power to reckon with. Both cars were leading the race at some point until bad luck befell them, eventually finishing 7th and 15th. The Nürburgring was less prosperous as the team never challenged for the win and saw both Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3s retired before sunrise.
