Nissan rounded out another successful year at the 4 Hours of Estoril last weekend, as the Nissan-powered Sebastian Loeb Racing team dashed to victory in the season finale.
Though Sebastian Loeb Racing won the race, it was the Signatech Alpine team that won the day, having scored enough points with its NISMO-tuned Nissan VK45DE V8-powered car to take the 2014 European Le Mans Series Championship. It’s actually not too unlike some of the NISMO cars we sell here at High Point Nissan!
But there were even more highlights for the automaker. 2013 GT Academy Europe winner Miguel Faisca made his debut in Estoril, and after turning in an impressive double stint, Nissan couldn’t have looked more impressive.
“That was amazing,” said Faisca. “I did over 50 laps and I must say it felt great. I was out during the middle part of the race when a lot of the top drivers were on track and I was able to hold position and put in some good lap times. I am very happy with my debut.”
