Rolle, Switzerland, 30th September 2013 – Nissan unveiled the first in a series of stunning Nismo short films showcasing the cutting edge technology and spirit of excitement behind both Nismo road cars and Nismo Athletes.

Set in Switzerland’s dramatic Susten Pass, ’Nismo Vs. Wingsuit’ treats the viewer to a two minute nail-biting encounter .. The 4,501 feet descent sees world-renowned BASE jumper Dave Barlia reach speeds of more than 210km/h (or 130mph), coming within six meters of the dominating rock face equipped with little more than his windsuit. Meanwhile Peter Pyzera, Germany’s 2012 Nissan GT Academy Champion, in his 370Z Nismo, negotiates his way along the unforgiving switchback road in a bid to beat the American.

The film showcases advanced technology such as the biometric harness and JukeRide used by the Nismo Athletes during the Driver Development Programme at the state-of-the-art Nismo Lab. The gruelling training and performance regime, with cutting-edge technology at its core, has been designed to ensure that Nismo Athletes can mix it with the best sports car racers in the world after just three months of training.

On completion of the descent, Nismo Athlete Pyzera commented: “That was absolutely amazing, I could see Dave up above me and I just had to concentrate and get in the zone to beat him down. Afterwards we looked at the data we gathered from wearing the biometric harnesses, which monitor my biometric data, and I could see when I was totally focussed. While this is fun, it is serious business – it not only improves my performance it is invaluable in helping me prepare for my next race.”

Jukeride is a unique analysis tool. For the first time it is allowing us to monitor biometric and telematics data from a wingsuit athlete, discovering what it takes to master this incredible feat of mental strength. Together with our coaches, Peter and his fellow Nismo athletes will apply these techniques to their training programmes, helping them to improve their performance.
Inspired by Nissan’s renowned Nismo performance arm, GT Academy celebrates Nissan’s first-class technology and its passion for giving fans the ‘edge’.
