Lucas Ordonez joins Deltawing test team

Nissan's inaugural GT Academy winner, Lucas Ordonez has been selected to join the test team for the Company's motorsport experiment, the Nissan DeltaWing.

As the fourth season of the GT Academy competition began this week, the very first ‘virtual-to-reality' racer received confirmation that he would play a key role in the challenging development of the prototype car.

The Nissan DeltaWing project aims to change the face of motorsport by completing the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours on June 16/17, using half the fuel and half the tyres of its contemporaries and hinting at a more efficient future for endurance racing.

Having taken a podium finish last year, Ordonez will race at La Sarthe again this summer, with the class-winning LMP2 prototype squad, Greaves Motorsport, alongside ex-F1 driver and Sky F1 commentator, Martin Brundle and his son, Alex.
