Nissan is hoping that its new partnership with Muscle Milk Pickett Racing this year will enable it to recapture the glory celebrated when its cars dominated the sportscar racing scene back in 1988-1991, when they took 4 consecutive driving championships, as well as 5 manufacturers titles and 33 IMSA races

“The Nissan engine was so strong in the WEC last year that in reality there was no other power plant to have, which brings confidence heading into the testing process. The engine produces a lot of torque with impressive reliability evidenced by the performance we enjoyed at Oak Racing in last year where we had two cars running strongly at the finish of the Le Mans 24 hours,” stated British driver Alex Brundle, who will be part of the Nismo Global Driver exchange racers competing alongside Muscle Milk’s Lucas Luhr and Klaus Graf

Luhr won the 2011 GTI World Championship with Michael Krumm aboard a Nissan GT-R, while Brundle has been a regular driver in the Nissan P2 Endurance Championship. The Nismo Exchange was launched last year to give international driver “the opportunity to compete as part of the Nissan family.”

Muscle Milk Pickett and Nissan will kick off their new partnership at the 2014 TUDOR United Sportscar Championship January 25-26 at Daytona. In addition, Nissan drivers will also pilot the Muscle Milk ORECA 03 prototype class entry at the 12 Hours of Sebring and Petit Le Mans.
