Modern top-level prototype racecars have notoriously bad, gunslit visibility. The Nissan LMP1 GT-R LM adds a level of complexity with flames. Flames to the face.

Nismo's LMP1 car is front-engined, with exhausts mounted up front as well, exiting right in the driver's line of sight.

I might be perhaps a touch distracted by this deep into the night at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Nissan's Harry Tincknell doesn't seem too bothered, however, by this test session with the car at Palm Beach International Raceway.

I can't wait to see this thing make its race debut.
