Imagine being 21 years old and getting the chance to make your dreams come true via a once-in-a-lifetime competition. This is exactly what happened to Wisconsin native, Nic Hamman. He rose above the competition and earned a spot in the fourth season of the North American GT Academy. Then, right from the start, he dominated the competition and earned a spot at the top of the podium.
Hamman, the GT Academy 4 winner, showed he had what it takes to be a professional Nissan racer with his physical abilities, excellent teamwork, ability to perform under pressure, and, of course, his speed on the track. In the final race of the competition, he finished a full eight seconds ahead of the pack.
“It takes a lot of money to do any kind of professional racing,” said Hamman, in a statement. “What GT Academy and Nissan have done is give someone a shot at racing top-notch racing cars with professional mechanics and pit support without the financial windfall that kind of thing requires. I am so grateful to be able to do this, and I can’t wait to get to my first professional race in January.”
You’ll be able to catch Hamman in his first professional race on January 8th – 10th in the Dubai 24 Hours.
Here at Lewis Nissan, we want to congratulate Nic Hamman on this phenomenal achievement, and we can’t wait to see how he performs as a professional racer.
