At the Nissan 360 motoring event in southern California, Nissan prepped a LEAF NISMO RC prototype for on-track tests.

Nissan COO Toshiyuki Shiga—the man who is also in charge of the CHAdeMO Association—was one of the drivers who took the all-electric racer based on the LEAF for a few hot laps. On video, it seems that Toshiyuki Shiga couldn’t stop smiling.

“Some have called the LEAF RC, which debuted at the New York Motor Show in 2011, the future of racing, but COO Shiga says it embodies the most important attribute for any vehicle: It’s fun to drive.”

There must be an unwritten rule at Renault-Nissan that all executives must race cars or be in racing jump suits at least once a month.

I think it is amazingly stupid of the car companies to add a bunch of weight from sound-deadening, only to have to add electronic chimes! That may sell cars to librarians, but really turns off car people.
