Drivers James Moffat and Michael Caruso have revealed the new-look Nissan
Altima V8 Supercars race car which will be armed with an updated aerodynamics
package for the 2014 season.
The new-look Nissan Altima V8 Supercars features smaller scallops on the front bar, as well a revised rear wing uprights.
In the return year for Nissan to Australian Touring Car competition, Moffat and Caruso produced some fine results, adding to their Winton one-two triumph.
While the livery of the 2014-specification Norton Nissan is similar to how it ended last year's championship, there are some subtle changes, including a pearl-based yellow paint, plus reflective white vinyl for the circle on Norton's famous "tick."
The two Norton Hornets, plus Nissan Motorsport's Jack Daniel's Racing entries of Todd and Rick Kelly, will hit the track for the first time this year at Sydney Motorsport Park for the traditional pre-season test this Saturday February 15.
"We had a number of highlights last year, and there were some tough times too, but we have put that behind us and we're looking forward to the 2014 season," said James Moffat. "Motor racing is a 'must deliver' business, but more so for Nissan Motorsport this year. In this industry, nothing speaks stronger than results, and that's what we are here to achieve this year."
Michael Caruso said that he is excited about the 2014 season, in part because of the new aerodynamics package.
"It's actually even more important for me, because due to some factors, I didn't do the pre-season test last year. Given we're racing there later in the year, it's an ideal chance to log some miles around the track," he said.
"As a driver, you aspire to be in a position to head to every race track with a realistic chance of winning, and I feel that we're not far away from being in that place."
