The driver line-up for Nissan's revolutionary ZEOD RC prototype will feature two past winners of the Nissan PlayStation GT Academy program with Belgian driver Wolfgang Reip signed to join Lucas Ordóñez at this year's Le Mans 24 Hours.
Nissan PlayStation GT Academy winner Jann Mardenborough received the biggest news of his career earlier this week with the announcement that he will contest Formula One feeder series, GP3 in 2014. Now the young star is also set to make his North American race debut.
Nissan will not only break new ground with the unique electric power plant aboard the Nissan ZEOD RC at Le Mans this year, but the accompanying internal combustion engine is set to revolutionize standards of performance and efficiency.
The Nissan PlayStation GT Academy has been discovering new talent since 2008. Gamers living in Europe, Russia, the U.S., the Middle East and South Africa have an annual opportunity to become the next Lucas Ordonez or Jann Mardenborough.
