Could it be that Team MOLA will compete in GT300 or it'll get merged by a new team?

@Japanese Samurai
Then how about GT300 silly season rumors?

If not , then can you please share the driver lineup rumors for GT500 next season driver lineup in December , as Autosport magazine is published in 15 December 2017. Even for the Super Formula as well.

Details are unknown.
I'll buy a print edition. But on-sale date is Saturday in my region.

GT300 rumor is too early to tell.

Kobayashi should have plenty of time thanks to the super season. I expect him and Nakajima to feature in every race next year unless there's a clash I'm not aware of!

Both the 2018 and 2019 6hs Spa clash with the Fuji 500km, and the 6h Fuji clashes with the 2018 race at Autopolis.

Also, it's pretty wild to see that Toyota has so much talent going in, that they may have to cut loose a two-time GT500 champion that's just 32 years old and can still battle for wins on the regular. And that's before you factor in Sho Tsuboi and Ritomo Miyata in the pipeline.

@rjoconnell

I hoped Toyota will accept more young driver to TDP (Toyota Young Driver Program) program.
Tsuboi and Miyata is not enough , they need more young driver for the Japanese F4 to replaced Miyata.

I do believe Autopolis race will be rescheduled someday once upon Eurosport Event sorted out 2018 touring car championship calendar( whatever WTCC or World TCR) in case it also affect other domestic champion too

[QUOTENissan GT500 audition test had might be done on the previous day of NISMO festival at Fuji][/QUOTE]

The day before NISMO festival was a test for all the cars (and even the busses) running on Sunday. No driver audition running. We were there making a new series for NISMO.tv (shh its still a secret)

Cars (I don't know which) were also on track the Friday before. If a GT500 was on track it was only one and only for a few laps.
