• MELBOURNE (Feb. 12, 2013) - Nissan Motorsport has stepped out in style at the team's launch in Melbourne, Australia Tuesday. The factory outfit unveiled its Nissan Altima V8 Supercars in 2013 race colors and driver line-up at the Melbourne Showgrounds, the latest chapter in Nissan's long-awaited return to Australian touring car racing. James Moffat and Michael Caruso will both join Nissan Motorsport, driving Altimas backed by leading internet security company Norton by Symantec. The familiar black and white colors of global whiskey giant Jack Daniel's have now been transferred to two Nissan Altimas to be driven by Nissan Motorsport co-owners Todd and Rick Kelly.

Good as it is, when we think about the Nissan Altima, the words "V8" or "supercar" are not in our vernacular, but Nissan Motorsports is looking to change all that. After unveiling the race version of its Altima sedan intended for the Australian V8 Supercars series back in October, the four race teams and their cars were revealed yesterday ahead of a preseason test session this weekend.
