Nissan Motorsport unveils Altima V8 Supercars racers

Nissan Motorsport has launched its Altima V8 Supercars in 2013 race colors and driver line-up at the Melbourne Showgrounds in Australia.

The presentation of the factory team represents the latest chapter in Nissan’s long-awaited return to Australian touring car racing. James Moffat and Michael Caruso will both join Nissan Motorsport, driving Altimas backed by leading Internet security company Norton by Symantec.

The familiar black and white colors of global whiskey giant Jack Daniel’s have now been transferred to two Nissan Altimas to be driven by Nissan Motorsport co-owners Todd and Rick Kelly. Nissan Australia Managing Director and CEO William F. Peffer Jr. said that the team unveiling was yet another significant milestone for Nissan Motorsport.

“Our Altimas are now in combat colors and ready for battle. Nissan is thrilled to be partnering with strong, global brands like Jack Daniel’s and Norton. The 2013 V8 Supercar Championship is an important part of the Nissan Altima’s marketing strategy. 2013 is guaranteed to be an exciting year for the sport of V8 Supercars, and especially for Nissan Motorsport,” said Peffer Jr.

Four Altimas will be on-track at the annual V8 Supercars Championship pre-season test day at Sydney Motorsport Park February 16, while the team will complete its journey to the grid on March 1-3 at the Clipsal 500 at the Adelaide Parklands, the opening event of the 2013 V8 Supercars Championship.
