There's a very thin line between leading edge and bleeding edge

Unfortunately it looks like +Nissan is going to have break out some bandages after today's Le Mans test day. The Nissan GT-R LM Nismo is about as all-new as it gets and the first day on the track with the rest of the 24 Hours of Le Mans field does not appear to have gone very well.

While the +Porsche 919s led the way with a best lap time of 3:21.061 followed closely by their +Audi USA R18 cousins, the best Nissan could manage was 3:50.713, putting this front-drive hybrid LMP1 back with the GTE machines. They have a lot of work to do in the next 13 days 🙁
