Video: Nissan fronts-up to endurance rivals

CONVENTION dictates that modern racing cars have to be mid-or-rear engine and, at the very least, rear-wheel-drive.

Why, then, did Nissan assume the same front-engined, front-wheel-drive layout as the average hatchback would bring them success in the World Endurance Championships and 24 Hours of Le Mans?

Ben Bowlby, the technical director of Nissan’s racing arm, Nismo, and Jann Mardenborough attempt to explain all in this video about the barnstorming and ever-so slightly barmy Nissan GT-R LM Nismo.
