Countdown to:

JRM Racing GT1

 In 2010 and 2011 the JRM Group ‘rocked’ the sports car racing world when it entered its specially constructed Nissan GT-Rs the FIA GT1 World Championship, firstly as Sumo Power GT and then by adding JRM Racing to its motorsport operation. The outcome? World Champions!

 After forging an association with NISMO in 2010, JRM rapidly created a team that would be the cornerstone of its world championship success a year later. In 2010 the JRM Group stamped its mark on the GT racing fraternity following a successful and high profile season in the FIA GT1 World Championship under the banner of Sumo Power GT.

 From the experience gained and with its links to NISMO strengthened as a result, the Group doubled its efforts in 2011 and, as well as entering two GT-Rs as Sumo Power GT, it entered a pair of similar cars as JRM Racing. With four cars, the Group’s involvement was one of the biggest and most significant privateer operations in sports car racing of that year.

 As history now shows it was a successful one too, as the German paring of Michael Krumm and Lucas Luhr went on to claim the 2011 FIA GT1 World Championship Drivers’ title. They also scored four outright race wins and secured JRM Group the coveted RAC Tourist Trophy for the second year in succession.

 With regulations for the FIA GT1 World Championship changing in 2012, in a move that meant only GT3 specification cars could be used, JRM decided to withdraw from the series while at the top, opting to embark on a new challenge by entering a Honda HPD ARX-03a in the inaugural FIA World Endurance Championship. And so the story continues…
