Having been through the Nissan GT academy I can understand the dedication these guys had to put in, I think Jann is a very deserving champion and it was a huge piece of bad luck that he experienced at the ring, im glad he bounced back - I think this is a pretty nice interview and its great that he is a Nissan enthusiast :)

 

Worth a watch -

Great Video.  Great find.

 

Jann is an amazing find.  I am glad he got over the ring.  But like so many things in racing its a mixture of the bad luck and circumstances.  Absolutely awful what happened last year, but circumstances outside eveyone's control.

 

Only have to go back to the Mercs at Le Mans when Mark Webber flipped.  Wrong time and wrong place.  I know when we were at Combe with the Tuscans some poor guy standing behind my OH was hit by a wheel which came off BVR's car tragically killed the guy standing behind her.  Unfortunately when its your time its your time, there is nothing anyone can do really.

I've had the pleasure of several chats with Jann, starting at a press briefing at NMGB hq, and various other places. He is very well thought of by everybody else I've spoken to, including RJN. I also sent him best wishes from the club after the Nordscleife incident. Really talented nice guy.

P.s. He owns an R32 as well!

 

(having now had time to view the whole video the above comment falls in to the category of "stating the bl**ding obvious" - sorry)

 

Nice to see him left-foot braking in it!

I've had the pleasure to meet Jaan a few times too.  Once when he was given the Juke for his birthday.

 

As John says, he's a really good bloke and a great ambassador for Nissan :)
