If the tyres can last 600 km, that means the teams with BS tyres won't have to change tyres at all on the race.

But how about the grip & the performance? I guess there must be some kind of trade off with the durability.

I don't know if the team actually used that tire.
The news source is Subaru's YouTube distribution.

Given its competitiveness, GR Supra GT300 will be still around for next seasons. It's possible to build GR86 on traditional JAF-GT spec from scratch, but I think the already established GR Supra will be more preferable especially for teams which want to switch cars for next season.

Anyway, with the GR Supra GT, I'm also glad because number of JAF-GT cars keep increasing, reducing domination of FIA GT3 cars.

But if someone wants to build next-gen Mother Chassis cars, I think GR86 will be the proper one as the base car (regardless of the engine).

Autosport web is reporting au Supra (#36) race report.
In the article, Tsuboi says he was caught up and made a gap by NSXs during the FCY.
Paddock rumors say that NSX and Supra had different speed limiter setups.
In short, NSX was faster than Supra during FCY.

According to Juichi Wakisaka blog,
Aguri Suzuki and Keiichi Tsuchiya (ARTA) say surely Fukuzumi made a mistake, but he's okay because ARTA (#8) car was shown lot on J-sports TV.

That seems like a perfectly sensible route to take with the new car.

Autosport web is reporting 2021 GT300 tire competition situation.
https://www.as-web.jp/supergt/695630?all

Dunlop has introduced new structural tire this season.
The development theme was to eliminate understeering, and as a result, understeering was almost eliminated.
They are also developing a way to prevent the tires from wearing on long runs, which will give them more freedom in machine setup.
BRZ and GR Supra have almost the same tire specifications.
In Okayama, the tires were a compound that emphasized wear resistance over grip, but thanks to the new structure Team Gainer were able to get Pole position.
Yasuda (#11) says that the new structure has allowed him to withstand situations that would have been ruined by tire wear last year. On the other hand, the warm-up performance is not as good, but still, relatively speaking, it's not that bad than rivals.
The concern was that both Gainer cars had been suffered slow punctures in Fuji (left rear tire).

In contrast, Bridgesotne's GT300 tire is a basically same specific as last year.
However, GreenBrave was about to win in Fuji round.
Yokohama-shod Team Kondo (#56) say that they lack total race pace than rivals in Fuji round due to success weight.

At this point, THE RACE commentary was still better. I hope the Motorsport TV folks can do something to better their commentary and fast enough to notify & update everything happens on the track.

Need to get back coverage on THE RACE YouTube channel. That was excellent.

Imagine Super GT live broadcasting onboard cameras just like Super Formula.

Mobility land announced that it will end the sale of tickets for the third round of SGT on May 9, as Mie Prefecture has become a designated area for "priority measures such as prevention of Covid-19 spread."
