Romain Sarazin

Nissan GT Academy driver Romain Sarazin will join the GT4 European Series Northern Cup at the opening round at Misano next month. The French driver will share the wheel of the Sean Walkinshaw Racing Nissan 370Z GT4 with Charlie Fagg.

Sarazin, who raced in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup with Nissan GT Academy Team RJN last season, is set to help Fagg and Sean Walkinshaw Racing in Italy when the British team makes its series debut. In 2016 Sarazin was Walkinshaw’s team mate in the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3.

“I am really happy to join Sean Walkinshaw Racing for the first race of the GT4 European Series Northern Cup alongside Charlie. I will do my best to bring my Blancpain Endurance experience to the team and try and get a good result,” said Sarazin.

Fagg is hoping to benefit from Sarazin’s GT3 experience and looks forward to having the Frenchman as his team mate in Italy. “He obviously has a fair amount of experience in GT racing and, coming from the NISMO background from Blancpain, it’s perfect for me as I will have great advice about these cars and tracks,” Fagg said.

“It’s going to be very good to be able to compare myself again Romain too and learn as much as possible from his experience, it will really help me start my journey towards being a professional GT driver.”

Team owner Sean Walkinshaw is happy to have Sarazin on the team for the opening round of the 2017 season. “It really is fantastic to have Romain onboard for the season-opener, we’re all thrilled he’s going to be partnering Charlie on his debut in endurance racing,” he said.

“His approach is extremely professional, he’s fast and a great team-mate for any driver to have, so we know it’s only going to be positive for Charlie as he takes his first steps with us in GT4. Romain has worked hard to put this deal together, we’re all very much looking forward to Misano.”
