Designed and produced specifically to compete in the FIA GT1 World Championship, the GT-R GT1 is based on the road-going version of the Nissan GT-R. The GT-R GT1 is powered by a Nismo race-prepped VK56DE, a naturally aspirated V8 engine that displaces 5,552 cc. It measures 2,040 mm (80.3 in) in width, 4,730 mm (186.2 in) inches in length, and has a wheelbase of 2,780 mm (109.4 in).



On February 27, 2009, Nismo announced a partnership with British racing team Gigawave Motorsports to enter a GT-R in four races in the 2009 FIA GT Championship season. The entry did not compete for championship points but was used by Nismo to refine the performance of the GT-R for future customer teams to use the car in the planned FIA GT1 World Championship in 2010. Nismo driver Michael Krumm and Gigawave driver Darren Turner would co-drive the GT1 GT-R. The Sumo Power GT-R won the 2010 RAC Tourist Trophy at Silverstone Circuit as part of the FIA GT1 World Championship on May 2, 2010.

The 2011 season saw Swiss Racing Team switch to Lamborghini which left Sumo Power running four GT-Rs, two under the Sumo Power GT name and two under JR Motorsports. JR Motorsports with drivers Michael Krumm and Lucas Luhr won the Drivers Championship in the 2011 season, achieving 3 wins and 1 pole position in 10 races. The team got second place in the teams' championship, as in the last race the No.23 car retired due to a crash and the No.22 car served a penalty while leading the race and finished in 8th position. End of the race the team was just behind by 3 points than the team's champions.
