Nissan’s official UK factory squad RJN Motorsport will return to the British GT fold this season with two 370Z GT4s entered under the UltraTek Racing banner.

The deal sees long-time UltraTek drivers Richard Taffinder and Martin Plowman reunited in the first of the Nissans, while another of the team’s stalwarts, Tim Eakin, is joined by former Emmerdale actor and British GT newcomer Kelvin Fletcher.

Birmingham-based UltraTek Racing contested the British GT4 class with Lotus Evoras in 2015 and ’16 but make the switch to NISMO machinery with three-quarters of the same driver line-up that competed in the latter part of last season.

Former Le Mans winner and LMP2 WEC champion Plowman should finally have the tools at his disposal to move the team forwards, while the arrival of Fletcher after a season spent racing in BTCC adds another intriguing dimension. 

This year will be the first since 2014, when RJN and Strata 21 ran GT-R GT3s, that the Nissan name has appeared on the British GT grid. It will also be the first domestic full-season campaign for a 370Z GT4; its only previous appearance came at Zandvoort in 2013.
