PostSubject: Gigawave to close GT1 team   Sun Jan 03, 2010 5:10 am

Quote :
The Gigawave Motorsport team, which was set to represent Nissan in this year's new FIA GT1 World Championship, is to close down according to a report on this week's AUTOSPORT magazine, published yesterday.

Gigawave was Nissan's development partner on the V8-engined GT-R project in 2009, and was due to have coordinated sale of cars and spares for the Japanese manufacturer this year.

The company has not yet officially confirmed its decision, but AUTOSPORT understands that financial problems were behind the move.

Nissan, which is now looking for a new European agent and team to run a pair of its GT-Rs in 2010, still has two cars entered in the FIA GT1 World Championship with the Swiss Racing Team.

Sad

That is a shame, I seem to remember that they missed the final round of the 2008 FIA GT championship too, or was that Jet Alliance Racing.

I think moving to a lower class like GT2/3/4 just to build back your team back up.

understandable now that SRO are looking for 2 car teams, which would have added to the expense for Gigawave. Doesn't rule out a shot at LMGT1 does it?
