As the Le Mans 24 Hours gets closer, Nissan is kicking testing for the ZEOD RC into high gear. The ZEOD RC is the electric hybrid prototype set to take on the racing world.
Recently, Nissan put the ZEOD RC through rigorous testing at Snetterton in the UK and will then send it to the Paul Ricard circuit in southern France later this month.
Behind the wheel of the ZEOD RC while at Snetterton is Nissan GT Academy winner Wolfgang Reip. He will be joined by fellow Academy winner Lucas Ordonez at Paul Ricard.
“Testing is probably one of the most important processes of all the development of the car because it’s only when you test that you see the result of all your work and that you see what you need to improve,” Reip said, in a statement. “To really see if the car is reliable there is nothing better than a proper track test. A good test day is where you learn a lot and have the least amount of issues as possible.”
Nissan even released a video of the ZEOD RC in action.
The NISMO team will gather data from the testing to make any necessary changes to the car to improve its performance. The ZEOD RC will compete in the Le Mans 24 Hours this summer under the “Garage 56” slot, which is reserved for new prototype cars.
Here at Economy Nissan, we can’t wait to see the ZEOD RC blow away the competition with its innovative hybrid technology.
