In these special Racing 101 instructional videos, 2011 GT Academy winner Jann Mardenborough shows how to master a rolling start, heel-toe downshift, left foot brake, and why racing drivers use these techniques.
After beating a million other Gran Turismo gamers and shining at the relentlessly tough GT Academy Racecamp, this is the story of the winners as they journey from winning GT Academy at Silverstone to training as professional racing drivers for Nissan NISMO racing teams around the world.
The 4 Hours of Estoril, the season finale of the 2014 European Le Mans Series, produced a race win for the Nissan-powered Sebastien Loeb Racing team and a popular championship victory for the Signatech Alpine team, which is also powered by the NISMO-tuned Nissan VK45DE V8 engine.
The final European Le Mans Series event takes place this weekend at Estoril in Portugal, and Nissan will be there to celebrate 30 years of NISMO with the fans of Le Mans racing. This event also sees the LM P2 debut of 2013 GT Academy Europe winner and local man, Miguel Faisca.
