A lot of people here probably won't be aware the Mark X is going out of production at the end of the year, so that isn't a surprise.

Autosport web is reporting Nissan's 2nd fresh engine (Nissan general director Motohiro Matsumura interview).
https://www.as-web.jp/supergt/511494?all

*Matsumura says that the development of the 2nd fresh engine is not delayed.
*Rivals (Lexus, Honda) had already introduced pre-chamber engine.
*Matsumura says that the pre-chamber that covers the spark plug in the combustion chamber has the advantage of improving peak power, but it also has the disadvantage of maintaining stable combustion in the transient region.
*Compared to F1, which uses special fuel, GT500, which has to use commercial high-octane gasoline, seems to have a negative effect.
*Matsumura says that basic research (about pre-chamber) is almost over. I think that there is a good effect, so it is one of the option. The question is what to do with the concept of combustion in total, and pre-chamber is prohibited in Class 1 (common regulations with DTM). So we have to think about whether we want an engine that supports both GT500/Class 1 category. I don't mention if our 2nd fresh engine has a pre-chamber.

pimmy should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Just finished watching Fuji.

A shame that the overall win was decided by the last safety car but it was a good race. Nice to see JLOC win in GT300 and the Mark X on the podium as well.

Unfortunately, I only made it to lap 80 before I had to mute the video as Cole & Gaymor don't know their arse from their elbow. Unbearable!

I'm not a big fan of them either but I know the names they're trying to pronounce lol. I guess that's only half the problem with their commentary.

They're going to need to start having public live timing if they expect me to follow a TV broadcast where the commentary offers literally zero insight about what's happening.

Korean company Nexen tire wants to participate in SGT in the future.
https://www.automesseweb.jp/2019/08/20/196928

Nexen is participating Japanese professional series of 86/BRZ race.
Ryu Nishimura (Nexen tire Japan CEO) says,
"In the future, we want to participate in SGT.
Hankook tire had participate in the series before. And they took several years to win.
Hankook's results at the SGT increased the value in Japan and changed the reputation of tire professionals.
They increased original equipment tires by supplying tires to DTM series.
Motorsports and OE are tire manufacturers' royal roads."

Can't say I've heard of Nexen tire. I see why they want in SGT, that would get their name out in Japan.

First came to my attention when they sponsored Man City. They seem to be gaining a larger global profile recently.

I've seen them around, just figured they were a budget brand but I know nothing about their road car tires.

Autosport web explains in detail the legality of the #6's pit stop.
https://www.as-web.jp/supergt/513777?all

Before #6 passed the first safety car line, SC board was posted on the 17th post. (2:55:36)
However, Hattori judged that the post that #6 should follow is the main flag tower because #6 was in a difficult place to confirm the 17th post.
When #6 crossed the first safety car line, the main flag tower posted a green flag.
Therefore, #6's pit stop was judged legal.
