Michael Krumm Takes Nissan ZEOD RC Wheel in Fuji Speedway Debut
Oct. 19 – Oyama-cho, Japan – The Nissan ZEOD RC made its debut run at Fuji Speedway on Friday with former GT1 Champion Michael Krumm at the wheel, moving from design board to the track in only seven months.
The ZEOD is on display during the six-hour FIA World Endurance Championship in Japan at Fuji this weekend.
“I have driven the LEAF Nismo RC before, but it was great to be in a full Le Mans-spec cockpit.”
“It was great fun. This was a low-speed demonstration, but I could feel a great response from the car,” Krumm said.
“Normally, electric vehicles don’t have a transmission, but this car has a full racing gearbox connected to the motor. The gearbox is the same as a normal racing car.”
“It has an electric powertrain that gives you a very new feeling. It was really fun.”
