Yep, I wonder how it will happen at Motegi with both of Honda & Lexus have a tag team to help each other for the championship.

But I guess the inter-team "help" is not something new. Back at 2002 JGTC season at last race Suzuka, it's all about #64 Mobil 1 NSX vs #6 Esso Ultraflo Supra for the 2002 title (although there are other cars which still eligible for the championship). 2002 was when top 3 fastest laps were awarded with points.

#16 Mugen NSX which was laden with 100kg handicap, tried to "help" #64 Mobil 1 NSX for the title by setting fastest lap to eclipse #6 Supra from top 3 fastest lap. To make it happen, the #16 made 2nd pitstop, changing tyres & did certain quick setups. But in the end the attempt failed because of GT300 traffic.

If Honda can't get on top of their tire wear it won't matter. They were good in warm weather, but as the temps have cooled, the Lexus has made the most of it.

According to Car Guy facebook page,
Team owner Takeshi Kimura has bought Ferrari 488GT3.
And he says that a certain big project with Ferrari/AF Corse will be launched.

Sporting regulations interpretation by Autosport magazine.
Strictly speaking, team-orders and manufacturer-orders are not prohibited.
GTA can only deprive championship points if they are against sportsmanship.

That depends on the driver line-up. AFAIK they are a bit more competitive now, sometimes running in the top 10

I hope so. They're always putting on a good show there. It's a great track for modern standards too.

GTA and HARO Sports and entertainment SDN BHD announce 3 year contract from 2020 for Sepang round.
In 2020 there is a Tokyo Olympic. So Fuji speedway can't be used for Fuji 500 miles race.
So Sepang will be a substitute race of Fuji round.

Saturday Press conference by GTA (Masaaki Bandoh)
https://car.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/1152706.html

About 2018 impressions
-I think that we could make many motorsport fans in this year.
-Only Super GT is competing in the world motorsport markets.
-We are cooperate with ITR for Class 1. Important thing is understand each other cultures.

About progress for 2019 joint events
-Currently ongoing
-We are asked by Japanese manufacturers to decide details by December 20.

About team-order suspicion at Motegi round
-We must define that was team-order or manufacturer-order at first.
-There is no rule for manufacturer-order because we have set no manufacturers title.
-Of course, we are capturing team radios.
So we could judged that situation is in the racing incident of #36's troubleshooting.
-I think the important thing is making rules for future.

About 2020 Fuji 500 miles race (impact by Tokyo Olympic games)
-We can not use Fuji Speed Way that periods. So no Fuji 500 miles race in 2020.
-So we have 8 races in a year including Sepang round.

Come to think of it, Fuji Speedway has a bike course, right?

Nojiri did what he had to do to give the #8 a chance at the title. They still need the #100 and #1 to both finish 7th or lower and the #36 to finish 3rd or lower, on top of winning the race, but they have given themselves a chance, unlike the unfortunate Sekiguchi after Nakajima's mistake.

The #100 is starting in a great position, but they will be wary of the Lexus race pace.

In GT300, Hiramine and Gamou both went under the lap record to secure the front row, erstwhile record holder Kataoka was third. Curiously, if the race ended as it starts, Gamou's #65 would take the title, but I'd wager the #55 should still be favourite as Takagi showed the car has pace in Q1 (Walkinshaw's Q2 effort was a bit disappointing) and should move up through the field during the race. If the #55 does struggle though, the title race would be wide open as a number of cars starting near the front still have a shot at the title through winning the race. I think it sets up very nicely.
