5.11 is proud to be the apparel of choice for the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO Team.
The Nissan NISMO squad made its race debut at the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans with the revolutionary Nissan GT-R LM NISMO.
The team is now preparing for 2016 where it will contest the entire FIA World Endurance Championship in the LM P1 class – doing battle with the likes of Porsche, Audi and Toyota.
Testing and development is underway on updating Nissan’s LM P1 challenger to incorporate a new hybrid system and other suspension developments before the first race of the 2016 season – the 6 Hours of Silverstone in the UK in April.
Nissan Racing chose 5.11 Tactical for the durability, quality construction and fabrics as well as the professional look. The Nissan Racing team wears 5.11 head to toe, including Stryke pants, Performance polos, Recon fleece jackets and more.
“Nissan LMP1 are proud to be associated with 5.11 Tactical. We compete in the World Endurance Championship and have to rely on all of our equipment just as heavily as we do on our drivers and employees to bring our cars to the checkered flag. Our races are a grueling test of man and machine so naturally we need partners who can supply equipment to last. The kit we have purchased from 5.11 Tactical is just as tough as our guys,” says Chris Mower, Team Manager.
“We have to give them the best so they can focus on their job and 5.11 comes through event after event. They always have exactly what they need thanks to the personal organization they now enjoy with all the pockets and easily accessible places to store the kit they need to get the job done fast.”
The team brought us behind the scenes to see our gear in action as the mechanics and crew prepared for a track day. Chris provided some color commentary for us as well.
Inspection of the new Machine. “Good job we have 5.11 Tactical flashlights to help us see the light!”
Some night running inspection. “Shame 5.11 don’t make coffee!”
Building the new car. “I cant believe we still have 1,872 more nuts and bolts to go!”
A cool day at the track. “5.11 Tactical keep our engine guys warm on the cold days when they don’t have exhaust heat to keep them toasty!”
