Swiss Racing in the FIA GT1 world championship

The Swiss Racing Team will enter the newly announced FIA GT1 world championship as "official Nissan customer team" in 2010 with two Nissan GT-R. Othmar Welti (team principal): "After providing technical support for teams like Jetalliance and K plus K in the GT1 championship over the past three years, the time has come to take charge ourselves. We're happy to have a strong partner on our side in Nissan and a competitive car in the GT-R." Erich Kolb (team manager): "It's important to establish a second line of business in economically difficult times. The Nismo project is an ideal addition to our Formula 3 commitment and enables young drivers to move up to GT racing."
