The fact that this feat was set here in a UAE creates it even some-more special for a region. Setting this impossibly formidable universe record was a transparent proof of a fad we are bringing to a Middle East with a Nismo brand.”

including a specifically tuned MY16 Nissan GT-R, gangling parts, tyres and all a other apparatus that compulsory difficult confidence checks and processes. Without a loyalty and untiring assistance of everybody during Fujairah International Airport we could not have achieved this, and we wish to demonstrate my frank interjection to everybody involved.”

Hard work and loyalty from all parties concerned have enabled us to grasp a idea of environment this new record. Through a dedicated training programs, a Prodrift Academy and Nissan will continue to be during a forefront of flapping in a Middle East.”
