JRM Group announced Wednesday that it has joined forces with Nova Race, which will campaign JRM-built and NISMO-supported Nissan GT-R GT3 cars throughout Europe and beyond.

As part of a multi-year partnership, the Italian GT squad will run two cars with full JRM technical support this year, along with plans to expand to a three-car effort for 2015.

“The Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 has already seen race and championship wins in Europe and beyond and we believe that JRM Group’s new partnership with Nova Race GT3 will add further pages to that success story,” said JRM Group Executive Director James Rumsey.

“The combination between two young, well resourced and ambitious organizations stands to produce real results in terms of on-track performance, engineering excellence and customer support. I believe that this could be the start of a very significant new force in European GT racing.”

Nova Race team principal Elisa Maioli added: “We founded our team through passion and that passion has been renewed with this very exciting new program.

“GT Racing in Europe and the Middle East is growing fast and the customer market in GT3 in particular is one which offers the opportunity for success in both sporting and business terms.”

While having yet to be formally announced, Nova Race’s 2014 program is likely to include select rounds of the Blancpain Sprint and Endurance Series, International GT Open, as well as potential entries for the Gulf 12 Hours and Dubai 24 Hours.
