Well that's how the rules are and so you really need a model that has the right aerodynamic shape. Sometimes if the manufacturer doesn't have the right model, you can't really do much about it. Obviously they can make a few tweaks, but there is only so much you can do within the rules and really concentrating more on the inside of the car sometimes is the best way to go

honestly don't think nissan issues are all depending by drag; also before dtm specs introduction in 2014, lexus SC430 was the car with highest top speed but nissan was however competitive enough for overall win unlike now.

Inside of upright parts of Lotus Evora GT300 (unified parts of mother chassis car).
It has a push-rod connection point (right). In other words, it is an evolution suspension (Japanese-English:Evo-sus, En:Pushrod On Upright, POU).

Really hopeful this will be the major boost for the team. Lately RC F GT3 doesn't fared well especially after #96 switched from BS to Michelin.

*The Mark X MC used an air conditioner, but it was unreliable, so the GR Supra GT300 adopted cool suit system.
*In tech regulations, air should not flow above the rear diffuser, but air after brake cooling can be exhausted to the rear of the tire house. So the left and right opening on the rear diffuser is legal.
what chassis is used for the supra gt300? road or bespoke MC/carbon/tubular?

According to regulations, JAF-GT300 has to maintain the monocoque of the base vehicle in the cabin area (from front bulkhead to rear bulkhead).
And a roll cage (tubular frame) must also be used.
Therefore, JAF-GT300 consist of a hybrid structure of the monocoque of the base vehicle and the original tubular frame.

I understand the logic, but it's such a shame GT300 went more GT3 instead of GT3 going more GT300. Just look how awesome those cars care!

thanks for the info, it's not that different than old FIA GT1 regs.
If am not wrong supra gt300 is powered by the rcf 5.5L V8, don't know how powerful is due gt300 bop, but with 500-520hp should be way faster than a gte

Hitachi Automotive systems, etc will be renamed as Hitachi Astemo.
http://www.hitachi.com/New/cnews/mon...10/201019b.pdf

Hitachi Astemo (ex- Hitachi Automotive systems) chicane?
Hitachi Astemo (ex-Keihin) NSX?

Obviously the only change should be the name. We'll see if the corners and other things associated with Hitachi change too. Great brand name that has been in Japanese motorsport a long time

Tsugio Matsuda (#23) says that GTR has a characteristics of high downforce, so it is suitable for Suzuka.

Yeah it was a bummer. I started watching Super GT races back in 2011 when they had the Shiden, the Garaiya, the Corolla Axio and many more.

After watching Round 6, looks like the GT500 class championship is heating up as the Top 5 pairs have a chance of winning it in Round 7.

Meanwhile, the Leon AMG pair is strong in GT300, although it's nice that Goodsmile Racing got a podium finish at Suzuka.
