Nissan to run three cars at LeMans in 2015

Chris Mower

Rumor has it that Nissan's new factory LMP1 program plans a third car at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

And rumor has it that the Japanese manufacturer has brought on board IndyCar veteran Chris Mower to lead efforts for the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO program. Mower, who is coming off a six-year stint with Panther Racing as its general manager, is understood to have started working with Nissan late last year at the manufacturer's California-based facility.

Darren Cox, NISMO Global Head of Brand, Marketing & Sales, would not confirm Mower's hiring but said that "Chris would be a good choice for sure."
