hvr777 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Here is the complete story of 2016 GT500 champion, Team SARD, since its first inception. It's in Japanese but the translation from Google seems easy to understand. Lots of team's up and downs especially on JGTC/Super GT.

Yeah, let's not forget this. After all, the main reason the DTM regs were adopted was because all three manufacturers wanted to stem the spiralling costs without losing face to each other. The double-header was great to watch, but it was due to extraordinary circumstances and all the teams had plenty of notice to make any extra preparations. I seriously doubt that it would run as smoothly if it were to become the norm.

Hopefully the push for international recognition (for which Bandoh deserves great praise) frees up the purses a bit and the series can be expanded to 10 rounds, which should be within the means of most of the regular GT300 teams as well.

To add to the previous explanations, maybe in the first few seasons the plan was to try and keep the two classes at 500hp and 300hp respectively, but if that was the case then it was quickly abandoned. The class names are just a holdover from that time. Even the JAF/MC cars make closer to 400hp now, so clearly for them to be balanced against much heavier cars, the GT3's BoP must be similar to VLN/Blancpain (i.e. 500+hp).

For instance, if you were going to rename the top class more accurately then it would be called GT700...

In Super GT300 class, only in ealry 2000 there were cars with 300hp... ford gt with 3.5 f1 engine; murcielago gt1; 360, 430, 458 gt2, various 911 gt2 were all in the 400-500hp range before the recent massive GT3 invasion. Anyway, power is nothing when GT500/300 prototypes have a 2x or 3x better corner speed.

In 2005 or 2006 team goh tested a maserati MC12 GT1 at suzuka for a possible effort in GT500 season. Even if the car had more than 100hp compared to honda, nissan and toyota; because of GT1 aero, MC12 was a slug in corners. The project was dropped.

Also open tires in GT300 allow for faster lap times than GTE

GTE is tire open, we have Dunlop for the Aston Martins and Michelin for the other teams.

Yeah, but they're not driver specific compounds and they're designed to be run for more than one stint.

Nissan put a Super GT acknowledgment AD on newspaper.


Challenge of GT-R is already starting from today.

There is a machine which is destined to win.
That's a car called GT-R.
However, GT-R was, two days ago,
lost 3 years continuous series champion
in the domestic top category series Super GT.
An important thing is how to treat this fact.
What is the one which wasn't enough? What is the point which should be improved?
We can begin from today to think.
Let's produce. By the technical power grown up thus far.
Let's produce. By the passion beyond we have ever.
Let's produce. GT-R which we have not seen yet.
GT-R which has got a parts as the chagrin,
next season, can be faster.

Please expect regeneration GT-R next season.

Thanks for our fans who fought and ran with us thorough this year.

If this case is happen , then they might make an individual vehicle adjustment like SRO GT3-BoP for JAF-GT300 BoP for the next season.

Sounds like the team weren't laughing at the time , their shouting was kinda synchronised but that was pretty funny.
