Todd and Rick Kelly will again lead the factory Nissan Motorsport team as it enters its fourth year in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.

The brothers are to keen to build on the team’s 2015 campaign, which delivered several podium finishes, and will again be joined by Michael Caruso. The fourth car will display a new number, 96, and will be occupied by a new driver in Dale Wood.

The Nissan team started life as Kelly Racing back in 2009 after Todd and Rick decided to begin their own outfit. A change in regulations in 2013 resulted in Nissan entering the Championship as a four car team, operating out the former Kelly Racing Melbourne headquarters.

While Nissan may only be in its fourth year of Supercars competition, the Japanese manufacturer is no stranger to Australian Touring Car racing. Nissan competed in the Australian Touring Car Championship as a factory team under the late Howard Marsden between 1982 and 1984, while Fred Gibson’s team ran the Nissan operation from 1986 to 1992.

Strong and consistent improvements have been the calling card of Nissan’s return to Australian motor racing, with 2016 set to be the team’s most ambitious yet.
