SUPER GT: Nissan suggests NDDP moniker not suited to drivers
Chiyo and Takaboshi were paired up in the NDDP for the 2022 season and competed in the #3 car under NISMO. They were strong contenders for the title in their first season together but came second in the standings. Nissan SUPER GT executive director Matsumura expressed that it doesn’t make sense to have experienced drivers like Chiyo and Takaboshi in a car labeled as “development.” While there may be changes in the line-up for the 2024 season, the goal is not to sacrifice the opportunity to win races. Matsumura also mentioned that Baguette and Hiramine could learn from Chiyo and Takaboshi’s concentration and qualifying performance.
