The Nissan GT-R N24 Schulze Motor Sports '11 is a custom racing variant of the Nissan GT-R which appears as free content within Gran Turismo 5's Spec 2.0 update. The car is a replica of the GT-R driven to class victory in the 2011 24 Hours of Nürburgring. Among the drivers was Gran Turismo founder, Kazunori Yamauchi.
"The first GT-R endurance machine which won its class despite being a private team entry."
In the summer of 2011, a sole Nissan GT-R competed in the famous Nürburgring 24-hour race in Germany, marking the first time that this legendary Japanese sports car contested in this challenging endurance event.
Fielded by East Germany's Schulze Motorsports, a private team owned by Wolfram Schulze who manages a Renault/Nissan dealership with his family just outside of Dresden, the GT-R had four drivers. They include two of Mr. Schulze's sons, Tobias and Michael, along with Kazunori Yamauchi and Yasukichi Yamamoto. Yamauchi, Gran Turismo series producer, placed 4th in class in the 2010 running of the Nürburgring 24 hours, while Yamamoto is a former All-Japan Super Endurance series champion.
This special race-prepared Nissan GT-R featured a larger rear spoiler and wider tires, but otherwise remained unmodified; the car's sturdy and powerful engine and transmission were not enhanced in any way and demonstrated the excellent durability throughout the race.
Competing in the SP8T class, the Nissan GT-R faced a trio of extremely fast rivals as Volkswagen Motorsports had entered three Golf GT24 race cars.
With the race starting at 4 p.m., two of the three Volkswagens were forced to retire during the night due to mechanical problems. The Nissan GT-R then entered into a fierce battle with the remaining VW Golf driven by former Formula 1 drivers Johnny Herbert and Mark Blundell.
At one point the Nissan was overtaken by the VW when it lost its anti-roll bar, but the German sports car encountered mechanical problems that allowed the GT-R to move back into the lead. In the end, Schulze Motorsports ultimately succeeded in its Nürburgring endurance race debut by capturing an exciting class victory.
