Nobu, who lives in Atami City, has entrusted reaching his targets with racing management company BAM Motorsports, based in the UK, under the direction of MD David Madgwick who has put together this comprehensive programme.
“Rarely have I come across a more motivated driver, young or old than Nobuya,” said Madgwick. “His application and determination to reach the standards necessary have been hugely impressive so far and I am sure he will continue to grow in confidence and ability as he continues his programme to Le Mans.”
For 2019, Nobu teamed up with Nielsen Racing alongside James Littlejohn in the European Le Mans Series. It was a new environment with new circuits as Nobu continued to work on his race craft and gain valuable experience. A return to Asian Le Mans with Eurasia Motorsport in the Ligier JSP2 17 saw him run in the striking ‘all black’ colours in honour of his successful business relationships in New Zealand.
While reliability issues curtailed strong results, there were plenty of positives in the four-round championship including a sensation over pole position in Malaysia. With plenty of race mileage complete, the next step is the biggest of all, to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
