Super GT file magazine reports the future of JAF-GT300/MC.

*JAF-GT300MC's GTA engine will be discontinued by 2020.
*Even in JAF-GT300, there is no balanced next-gen engine.
*The aerodynamic performance of GT3 vehicles is evolving and there is a big gap compared to JAF-GT300/MC.

*Takeshi Tsuchiya is looking for an engine for the next-gen MC.
A large-displacement turbo engine is being considered, but it is a bottleneck to have it supplied as non-brand.
*Current JAF-GT300/MC has too less downforce, so it cannot be handled by a gentleman driver.

*The minimum weight should be raised to around 1200 kg and the power should be raised to around 500 hp.
*New engine/monocoque must be highly versatile and contribute to cost reduction.
*Create an environment where you can make things, and train next-gen mechanic, engineers.

Super GT file magazine's reports <Other news>

*Unveiled NSX-GT was a show car that was manufactured using mid-ship monocoque.
Therefore, the actual race car may have a different design.

*For SGT/DTM dream race, a rolling start might be adopted because of the engine-mapping of SGT vehicle.

*Masaaki Bandoh (GTA) says that BoP in the dream race is unavoidable even if it becomes somewhat advantageous to DTM for the first time. He wants to make it a successful event.

*Logistics costs for exchange races are paid in half for both GTA and ITR.

A new engine for Mother Chassis cars, huh? I hope that the new engine would be reliable and faster so it can keep up with GT3 cars.

On the other hand, the Class One plus alpha specs will be used for Super GT races, while the common Class One specs will be used for the crossover race with DTM?

I remember previously Tsuchiya stated that his team needs to be qualified in front rows because the car (86 MC) with its advantages & weaknesses, is difficult to fight back with GT3 cars especially on the straight line speeds.
Also, I always think about untapped potential of mid-engined #2 Syntium Apple Lotus, if only the team can field all-pro lineup.

"but it is a bottleneck to have it supplied as non-brand."
Does it mean the next engine has to be built as dedicated race engine & not derived from production-based engine?

Yes.
However, it will not be a perfect equal condition.
-The capacity of the fuel tank in the monocoque is different.
-I don't think the SGT side will develop 350 bar spec class one engine.

I mean that no manufacturer wants to supply its own engine with a non-brand (GTA badge).

Huge thanks to JS for translation, as I've only started it and was a bit frustrated by my still kindergarten-level knowledge
I have a single question. How are they going to BoP a dtm stuff if anyone (Hitotsuyama for example) wants to use an Audi (for example) in GT500? Too much to balance after all. But it's better to have a proper GT500 machinery rather than dtm frozen to absolute zero.

I think SGT and DTM technical regulations will not be completely unified.
This is because it will take time to catch up rival if the same regulations are introduced later.
Therefore, they try to introduce something new tech ahead of rival (NRE engine, 350 bar spec DTM engine, Hybrid system, etc.).

And they were talking about "Europeans can enter GT500 and Japanese - DTM". It would require a huge BoP even with all that "EB" "SP" common parts. I don't see it happen in the nearest future. But if it happens I hope Japanese Autosport will explain all the details of potential BoP and still will have detailed articles after every race, so we will be able to find out the real "balance".
As for dtm tech - they were using the same engine since 2000's. And "frozen" rules were presented a way ago. That 350 bar injection - it's known even in usual cars, as it's written in "Super GT files". So, I don't see any achievement in using this stuff. All in all, GT500 and JAF GT300 (I hope) will remain constructor's and engineer's heaven if to compare with dtm.

With the disparity between the Class 1 and the plus alpha, it makes me wonder if there's going to even be a crossover besides the one-off races. It seems unlikely they will develop two types of cars on either side unless there's a big customer who has money for development in Super GT. This makes me feel like this class one ruleset was a waste of time.

Kamui Kobayashi will participate in the Super GT x DTM special exchange game at Fuji Speedway on November 23rd and 24th from BMW Motorsport. This is the first time that Kamui has raced on a DTM vehicle. Thank you for your support. by web-team


Comment from Kamui Kobayashi

"First of all, I would like to thank BMW Motorsport for offering me the BMW M4 DTM for the first Super GT and DTM exchange event in Japan. Thank you to Toyota for giving me.

This is the first time that the BMW M4 DTM is actually driven, but the other day I visited the BMW Factory and the simulator is preparing as much as possible, such as testing for several hours. In the race, I want to get the best results with the BMW M4 DTM. I think this will be a very interesting event, so please support us.

Autosport web is reporting that the factor behind the victory of Craft Sports GTR (#3) was the advice of Hirate's wife.
Hirate's wife is Sendai native, and knew a certain legend.
It is "If Mt. Zao gets haze, it rains."
The team chose the grooved tires according to this legend.

Is there any news about lap times? Why did Nissan stand in the garage for so long? Will it be standing start after all (as GT500 were practising it)?

Autosport says (I'm writing by memory) "Whether GT500 were playing shamisen". Who can explain what this idiom stands for?
