As Nissan’s flagship, buying a GT-R gave owners the chance to take part in the Nissan Race Academy, a tuition program held at the famous Silverstone circuit aimed at exploring the limits of their new car.
Now Nissan has extended this offer to the new crop of 370Z customers who will join the Race Academy ranks to find the ultimate Nissan performance driving champ.
Customers in the UK buying either a 370Z or a GT-R by the end of September gains automatic entry into the exclusive Nissan Race Academy ranks.
They will race for more than just bragging rights, with the participants battling it out for the prize of a lifetime awarded to the quickest driver of the pack.
The top 20 drivers of the year will face-off as they compete for the title of Nissan Race Academy Top Gun 2009, an honour which will entitle them to a whole season of high octane racing behind the wheel of a specially prepared 370Z entered into the Dunlop Sport Maxx Cup.
Initially set up to give GT-R customers the chance to experience the full capabilities of Nissan’s supercar up to 12 months ahead of taking delivery of their own car, the Race Academy was a huge hit in its debut year of 2008.
