Nissan will become the first Japanese automaker to compete in the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E racing championship, starting in season five late this year. Nissan’s alliance partner Renault and its top team e.dams offered Nissan/NISMO one rookie test seat to help with preparations.
 
Takaboshi had a stunning season in Formula 3 last year, winning seven races and taking 11 fastest laps in the 20 races. His 2017 program also included a full season in the GT300 class in Super GT, aboard the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3.
