Seems to be a good demand for English comms on live and VOD coverage.

The foreign drivers in the series all met over the weekend to discuss options for getting it back, sounds like its expected to return by Rd2.

Great result for Saitama Toyopet, maybe just Bridgestones in the wet or an driver upgrade?

Team apr (#30) says that the reason why they don't equip the hybrid system is because they are equipped with big torque, large displacement engine, so they judged that they can do good race even without motor assistance.

Autosport magazine No.1505 SGT report
http://www.as-books.jp/books/preview.php?no=7004

*About GT500 engine war.
As for NRE engine, the compressor size is fixed. Therefore, total air flow rate is limited.
By engine development war, the amount of air is already close to the limit even by normal engine use.
As a result, Qualifying "party mode" will not work on circuits with high altitudes and high temperatures.
In other words, the party mode will not be effective except for the Motegi round.

*About GT300 tire war
Team Tsuchiya (#25) will introduce new spec Yokohama tire in upcoming Fuji round.
This tire was very effective in Fuji official test and it will work also in other circuits.
GT300 tire war is continued.
