Since its formation in 2008, Nissan's GT Academy has grown into one of the best driver selection and development programs in the world. The stakes are raised each year making the competition harder and making sure that only the best talent rises to the top. Something that has remained constant since 2008 is the involvement of RJN Motorsport and Alex Buncombe, who has been each of the graduate's first professional team mate.
