CRP Racing announced that it will campaign a pair of Hawk Performance-backed Nissan GT-Rs in this year's SCCA Pirelli World Challenge, in partnership with Nissan North America.
“Nissan is looking forward to partnering with CRP Racing to campaign the Nissan GT-Rs in the 2012 Pirelli World Challenge GT class,” said Ron Stukenberg, Senior Mgr., Motorsports Marketing Communications at Nissan. “Both CRP Racing and the Nissan GT-R have a long history of winning races and we anticipate that success will carry over to the Pirelli World Challenge series.”
Nicholas Short, owner of CRP Racing, added. “We're very happy with this new collaboration between CRP Racing and Nissan North America to develop the Nissan GT-Rs into a race-winning package. We now have two great partners in the Hawk Performance Group and Nissan, which will allow CRP Racing to show its true potential as a car builder and a race team.”
The Nissan GT-Rs are currently being built at CRP's Harrisburg, NC, shop. Drivers for the program were not announced.
