Instructors from Silverstone International have entered the final stages of a Pan-European driving programme to introduce the Nissan GT-R to more than 1,300 pre-sold customers.
The 19-date run at Germany’s Nurburgring follows the successful debut of the experience at the home of the British Grand Prix in August, where more than 500 owners got to grips with the super saloon car for the first time.
Under the logistical arm of Silverstone International, the initial two stages of the ground-breaking ‘Best in Class’ Nissan Academy allowed customers to experience the phenomenal performance of the GT-R as well as learn important advanced driving techniques.
“Half of those who attended had been on other drive experiences, but 98 per cent of them were unanimous that the Academy was their best one yet,” explained Jonathan Tait, Sales & Marketing Director, Silverstone International.
Darren Cox, European Brand Promotion Manager for Nissan Europe, added: “This is not your average car and this is not your average driving experience. Nissan has set its sights high with this breakthrough customer focused launch; in partnership with Silverstone those ambitions are being delivered in spades.”
Further sessions, including the opportunity to take a full race licence test, will be held during 2009. Nissan and Silverstone are working on an even bigger offering of driving experiences for Passionate Sports car driver’s that will be rolled out in 2009.European deliveries of the GT-R supercar will start in April 2009. Currently the waiting list is 18 months in the UK. Published 22 October 2008
