Audi has dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans since the start of the millennium, but in recent years, they’ve had to deal with stiffer competition from the likes of Porsche and Toyota. This year, for the 83rd running of the annual endurance race, Nissan also joined in the fight to take down the mighty Germans in France.
Nissan showed up to Le Mans with the radical, FWD front-engine GT-R LM Nismo. It’s the exact opposite of Audi’s rear-wheel drive, mid-engine diesel R18 e-tron Quattro, which is a good thing, because it’s hard to beat Audi at its own game. It’s definitely a risk, but who knows? It just may off.
The only way to know whether Nissan’s front-wheel drive gamble of a race car is working is to watch the race. Luckily, Nissan and Nismo have made it super easy to follow their progress as they race around Circuit de La Sarthe this weekend, posting live streams of its pit box and all three of its No. 21, 22 and 23 GT-R LM Nismo entries.
We’ve embedded the live stream below, so sit back, grab a drink and scan through the different cameras using the tabs at the top to enjoy the race from every angle.
