2017 Japanese Super GT

Here is a new thread to discuss about the next Super GT season. As the calendar has the same circuits in order, it doesn't look too bad for me.

calendar: Rd.1 Okayama - April 9 , Rd.2 Fuji 500km - May 4 , Rd.3 Autopolis - May 21 , Rd.4 Sugo - July 23 , Rd 5 Fuji 300km - Aug 6 Rd.6 Suzuka 1000km - Aug 27 Rd.7 Buriram - Oct 8 and Rd.8 Motegi - Nov 12

As 1st GT500 championship win for SARD, Lexus Team SARD finally used number 1 for the next season . For GT300 champion, VivaC Team Tsuchiya , they used number 0 car for Toyota MC86 .

So far , Team Tsuchiya confirm Matsui and Kenta Yamashita (2016 F3 champion) to drive Vivac 86

Champion team can choose whether the champion number is used.
Use of the champion number isn't obligation.

Thanks for the reply, it's means that champion number can choose whatever they want to used No #1 for GT500 while No#0 for GT300, is that right??

For my opinion, No#1 for GT500 champion car sure have for next season, because Super Formula champion also used #1

It's the championship teams' choice on whether they'll use the special number or not.

And besides AkioAsakura95, you should know it well!

Ummm, I already know this already .

By the way, I hoped Heikki Kovalainen race in Super Formula by next season to master the skills as the defending champion.

#25 is too sacred to be replaced I think, that number has very long history..
At 1999, as the defending champion (#25 Momocorse Apex MR-2), they kept that number and got championship title again through Morio Nitta.
Also, #25 seems synonymous with Yokohama tyre. At Yokohama's first presentation for Super Formula, they used red/black livery and number 25.

It's interesting to see if Team SARD will keep their #39 or use #1 next year.

I think they used #1 , because Team SARD had been used #1 in Le Mans 24 hours race since 1994
