DISAPPOINTMENT FOR TINCKNELL BUT NISSAN WINS WORLD’S BIGGEST GT CHAMPIONSHIP

NÜRBURGRING, GERMANY - 20 September 2015:  The #23 Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 line-up of Alex Buncombe (GB), Katsumasa Chiyo (JAP) and Wolfgang Reip (BEL) has won the Blancpain Endurance PRO Driver’s Championship. Third place in a nail-biting, season-closing race at the Nürburgring in Germany sealed the title win for Nissan after a season of hard racing in what is accepted to be the biggest GT championship in the world.

Unfortunately for Harry Tincknell the #22 GT-R didn’t make it to the one-hour mark after falling foul of a throttle problem, the end result of which saw the car being pitched into the pit wall by a following Ferrari.  This also meant that 2014 GT Academy winners, Gaetan Paletou (FRA) and Ricardo Sanchez (MEX), didn’t get to race today. 

“It’s a massive shame as I was really enjoying my GT debut,” said Tincknell. “I only drove the car for the first time yesterday so it was great to finally have a good run in the car and I was enjoying running at the same pace as the leaders.  I haven’t had a crash for about two years so hitting the pit wall was a bit of an eye-opener.  Both Gaetan and Ricardo were super fast this weekend and we had the pace to win the PRO AM class today but it just wasn’t our day.”
