Nissan has withdrawn from next year's World Endurance Championship (WEC), which has the Le Mans 24 Hours as its headline race, after their 2015 car proved uncompetitive.

Nissan said their commitment to motorsport remained strong and they would continue to support the WEC through various engine programs.

The company returned to the top LMP1 level of the endurance series this year with a front-wheel-drive GT-R LM NISMO car but it was well off the pace at Le Mans, the only race it contested. The 2016 season starts at Silverstone in April, with Porsche the defending champions.
