Nissan power will return to the Circuit de la Sarthe next week in France for both the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Road to Le Mans support race.

LM P1 squad ByKolles will contest next week’s endurance classic powered by the turbo 3.0-liter VRX30A evo engine. The team prepared for Le Mans last Sunday at the annual test day with Oliver Webb, Marco Bonanomi and Dominik Kraihamer completing 68 laps at the wheel.

As the sole engine supplier for the LM P3 class, NISMO will also be in action at the Road to Le Mans event which features GT3 cars. Nissan powerplants will power a total of 34 LM P3 machines from chassis-makers Ligier, Norma, Adess and Ginetta. The Road to Le Mans will include a pair of 55-minute races one on Thursday and the final on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. prior to the 24 Hours.
