Nissan: ESM: We design a "dogfight" this weekend during Long Beach

Posted on 06. Apr, 2017 by in Nissan Canada

LONG BEACH, Calif. – After participating in a “36 hours of Florida” during Daytona and Sebring, Nissan engine patron group ESM is set to competition in a shortest IMSA competition of a season—a 100-minute competition on a streets of Long Beach this Saturday, Apr 8.

The ancestral California venue is a usually travel circuit on a IMSA calendar, and it provides a singular plea for a teams. In fact, it is a usually travel circuit used by a IMSA, FIA WEC or ELMS championships.

“Long Beach has to be in a tip five, in terms of atmosphere, for any competition in a world,” pronounced ESM’s Johannes outpost Overbeek.

“Southern California has a really abounding automobile and racing culture, and new and aged is on arrangement during a Long Beach weekend. It’s one of my favorite events, and I’m anxious to be behind with Ed [Brown] and ESM. Because of a parsimonious inlet [of a course] and a brief competition length, it will be a dogfight from start to finish.”

Van Overbeek will group with Ed Brown aboard a team’s No. 22 entry, while Scott Sharp competes with Ryan Dalziel in a No. 2 Nissan-powered car.
