Nissan’s 2012 Racing Season…

**

…starts Friday 13th, January 2012 in Dubai

•    Nissan’s 2012 racing season gets underway next week in Dubai 
•    First ever all-gamer line-up competing for glory
•    2011 Champions to give the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 its 24 hour debut

After a season of astonishing success in 2011, which saw Nissan win championship titles across the board, the 2012 season is revved up and ready to go next week at the Dunlop 24H DUBAI. There will be three Nissan cars in action in Dubai, all with very different reasons for being there, but all focused on success.

Nissan’s brand new GT3 car, the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3, will compete in the A6 class in the hands of Michael Krumm (GER), Tom Kimber-Smith (UK), Franck Mailleux (FRA) and Alex Buncombe (UK). Those four drivers represent championships won in 2011, namely FIA GT1 World Driver’s Championship, the Le Mans Series LMP2 title, the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup LMP2 title and the Blancpain Endurance Series’ GT4 crown.  Dubbed the ‘Champions Car’ the GT3-specification Nissan GT-R celebrates the successes of 2011 while continuing the new car’s intensive test and development programme.

“2011 was a great year for Nissan and I am very much looking forward to racing the new GT3 car in Dubai,” commented Krumm.  “The Nissan GT-R took us all the way to the top in 2011 so I hope we can have a good race with the new car.  It’s great to celebrate a successful 2011 for Nissan and I’m excited to see how the GT Academy guys get on in the ‘All-Gamer’ car.”

Perhaps the most exciting entry is of course the Nissan 370Z with an all-gamer driver line-up. The four winners of Nissan/PlayStation GT Academy will race together in the first ever all-gamer crew in a major race. The most recent winners, Jann Mardenborough (UK) and Bryan Heitkotter (USA), earned their place in the Dunlop 24H DUBAI when they won GT Academy last summer. Since then they have been on one of the steepest learning curves imaginable to make sure they are up to speed for such a daunting race.  Joining the newest recruits will be two ‘old hands’, the winners of Seasons One and Two, Lucas Ordonez (ESP) and Jordan Tresson (FRA). Lucas was the new boy in Dubai in 2009 but just three years later he is an international champion.

“It’s a good feeling for me to go back to Dubai as this is where it all really started for me, just three years ago,” said Ordonez.  “I know that Jann (Mardenborough) and Bryan (Heitkotter) will be very nervous but also very excited to take their GT Academy prize and compete in this race.  I also know what an intensive development programme they have been on so they are more than ready for the challenges ahead of them.  I hope that, along with Jordan (Tresson), I can help them to a good result. It’s going to be a tough race due to the heat but I am convinced that Jann and Bryan will prove that they are real racing drivers now, just as Jordan and I did last year.”

There will be a third Nissan competing in the race next week as RJN Motorsport will run a second Nissan 370Z for Humaid Al Masaood (UAE), Richard Meaden (UK) and Tetsuya Tanaka (JAP).

“I have competed successfully in the previous two Dunlop 24H DUBAI with my own team so to be invited to race with Nissan and their three car assault is a great honour and a new challenge,” said Al Masaood. “Although I am now racing in the USA there is something very special about racing in my local 24hr as it is this race that has helped me develop as driver.  I am looking forward to working with Nissan and my co-drivers and hopefully delivering a great result.   It is really encouraging to see Nissan bringing talented young drivers into motorsport through GT Academy and I am keen to see drivers from the Gulf region be given the opportunity to start racing through such a professional programme.”

The Dunlop 24H DUBAI will start next Friday, 13th of January 2012. The race can be followed live on Motors TV and on:     www.live.24hseries.com

Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) today announced pricing for the all-new, totally redesigned Nissan Versa Sedan – with the lowest starting M.S.R.P.* in America** at just $10,990. Rather than a stripped-down entry-level vehicle at that price, the Versa Sedan 1.6 S 5MT includes standard air conditioning, 6-way adjustable driver’s seat, AM/FM/CD/Aux-in audio system and an advanced 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine with dual injector system and twin Continuously Variable Timing Control (CVTC). Versa Sedan fuel economy is estimated at 33 mpg Combined with the CVT transmission.

The new 2012 Versa Sedan is available in three models – 1.6 S, 1.6 SV and 1.6 SL – and is scheduled to go on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide in early August. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices* (MSRP) for the 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan models include:

Model/Engine/Transmission

Versa Sedan 1.6 S 5MT $10,990 USD

About the 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan

The 2012 Nissan Versa Sedan is designed to redefine compact car value – giving buyers everything they want and need in one stylish package, including the utilization of smart technology to create a next generation eco-drivetrain delivering responsive performance, high MPG and lower CO2 emissions***.

The all-new front-wheel drive global “V” platform, designated “V” for Versatile, utilizes nearly 20 percent fewer platform components and weighs around 150 pounds less than the previous “B” platform. The second-generation 1.6-liter HR16DE 4-cylinder engine includes a range of cutting-edge technologies, making it one of the most advanced powerplants in its class. For example, the new Versa Sedan engine is equipped with two streamlined injectors mounted near the inlet valve for each cylinder. This dual injector system allows a wider injection of fuel, with the smaller nozzles delivering a finer spray (approximately 57 percent finer than the previous generation single injector design’s particle size) to help achieve more complete combustion.

The new compact, lighter weight engine also utilizes a twin Continuously Variable Timing Control (CVTC) system mounted on both intake and exhaust ports (conventionally mounted only on the intake port), similar to the system used on the flagship Nissan Maxima. The engine is rated at 109 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque.

The 2012 Versa Sedan is available with a 5-speed manual transmission (1.6 S model only) and with a next-generation Xtronic CVT™ transmission. The CVT allows continuous change of the transmission gear ratio by connecting the two pulleys with a metallic belt and changing their diameter by using hydraulic pressure. This new CVT design adds an auxiliary gearbox using planetary gearing, helping enhance efficiency. It also features a transmission ratio of 7.3:1, which is broader than those of conventional CVTs and even typical 7-speed automatic transmissions. The result is fuel economy for the 2012 Versa Sedan estimated at 30 mpg City, 38 mpg Highway and 33 mpg Combined with the CVT transmission (27/36/30 mpg with the 5-speed manual transmission).

The Versa Sedan’s new exterior design is also a departure from most current compact sedans, offering a refreshing design character that is both sophisticated and highly aerodynamic. Inside, the sophisticated styling theme continues with an open, airy, high-quality look and feel – including available upgraded cloth, 60/40-split fold-down rear seat and Fine Vision instrumentation. The new Versa Sedan’s long list of standard and available equipment includes available Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, XM® Satellite Radio (XM® subscription required, sold separately) and an in-dash 5-inch touch-screen navigation system with XM NavTraffic® (XM® subscription required, sold separately) and USB input for iPod® and other compatible devices.

Along with the long list of standard equipment for each trim level, packaging has been simplified to make the shopping experience easier for customers. Among the available 2012 Versa Sedan optional equipment packages are a Convenience Package (1.6 S CVT), Convenience Package (1.6 SV) and Tech Package (1.6 SL).

The 2012 Nissan Versa is also available in a 5-door Versa Hatchback version, which receives only minor refinements for the new model year. It is scheduled to go on sale July 17, 2011. Full information and pricing will be available at that time on NissanNews.com.
