24 Z NISMO & #1 GTR NISMO
Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Nishi-ku, Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, President: Makoto Uchida) and Nissan Motor Sports & Customization Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chigasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture, President: Takao Katagiri; abbreviation: NMC) have announced that the Nissan Z NISMO will be announced that it will participate in the 2nd round of the ENEOS Super Taikyu Series 2024 Empowered by BRIDGESTONE, the ``Fuji SUPER TEC 24 Hour Race'' (May 24th to 26th), with the race car ``Nissan Z NISMO Racing Concept.''
Nissan and NMC continue to take on the challenge of entering new motorsports categories. The Super Taikyu Series has an "ST-Q" class in which development vehicles are allowed to participate, so since 2022, Nissan Z Racing Concept has participated in multiple races including the Fuji 24 Hour Race. This season as well, we will be participating in the Fuji 24 Hour Race in order to develop carbon neutral fuel (CNF) compliance for mass-produced engines and update and develop the Nissan Z NISMO GT4, a GT4 category vehicle.
Nissan aims to achieve carbon neutrality across the entire product life cycle by 2050. In motor sports, in addition to participating in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, an electric car race, we are also working on initiatives aimed at realizing a wide range of carbon-neutral motor sports, including the development of race vehicles using CNF. Masu.
Takao Katagiri, Office Head of Nissan's Motorsports Business Unit and President of NMC, said, ``This year we will be participating in the ST-Q class of the Fuji 24 Hour Race with a developed vehicle based on the Nissan Z/Nissan Z NISMO. This will be our third time. By further deepening our knowledge of CNF from the perspective of sustainable motorsports, and by accumulating valuable actual data obtained through competition under extreme conditions, we will continue to develop cars that our customers can enjoy even more. I will continue,” he said

Team NISMO #230 finished 19th completing 685 laps. This was a heartbreaking result as the Z ran ahead of all cars competing and only behind the ST-X class for over 20 hours and 617 laps before an issue arose that led to an extended time in the pits loosing many laps

-Team Impul Z finished 9th overall 4th in class completing 723 laps


-Team ZEROONE had both Zs exit the race very early on but worked on them to return to the race at the very end for a moral victory
