Behind the scenes at Sebring: NISMO lends a driver to Muscle Milk
Last weekend was the 12 Hours of Sebring, round two of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, and it was the first time that a Nissan NISMO athlete has raced with Muscle Milk Pickett Racing in the series.
Recently, Nissan's NISMO motorsports arm penned a deal with long-time collaborator Muscle Milk Pickett Racing to add the TUDOR circuit and Muscle Milk talent to its driver exchange program. This past weekend was the first of those exchanges, with NISMO driver Jann Mardenborough going to Sebring to join with Muscle Milk during the twelve hours of track running.
This interview/documentary shows the process from wake-up time on race day through to the actual race as Mardenborough races for the first time in the Americas. The young racer talks about the team, the interactions, the fans, and his personal process for gearing up, chilling out, and getting race-ready.
While the race itself was not good for the team, thanks to a mechanical problem taking the car out of the race, it was an overall positive experience for the young driver who's documented in this short film.
If you're a race fan, this is a rare look into the garage, off the track.
