Actually the #51 JMS LM Corsa changed number to #96 and now the team is sponsored by Okayama Toyopet dealership, rechristened it to "K-Tunes Racing LM Corsa".
K-Tunes Racing is the racing division of Okayama Toyopet, last year K-Tunes Racing participated in 86/BRZ Race and Inter Proto Series.

At Tokyo Auto Salon, I thought Okayama Toyopet would be racing as newly-established team, suggested by its number and livery so there would have been 4 RC F GT3. But later I found they decided to participate in Super GT with already existing team through the role as main sponsorship.

Hi Japanese Samurai, I have a big problem with SGT physics rulebending cars

Let's start with something: Since 2014, SGT cars share aero parts with german DTM rulebook; and 2017 there has been an about 20% downforce reduction because of new aero restrictions.

Ok, let's keep with this:
DTM cars are powered by NA 4L and have a power output of about 500hp, with an overall weigth (driver incl.) of 1120kg.
Watching top speed charts of a pair of seasons ago, german DTM cars top speed at hockeneim is in the range of 270km/h.

Now let's focus on this:
SGT and DTM share aero parts, maybe SGT cars have more downforce, but not so much more, considering also the downforce cut.
DTM cars: 1120kg - power: 500hp
SGT cars: 1100kg (1020+80) - power: 600-650hp according to different sources.

Fuji main straight is longer than hockenheim parabolika straight, well the question is: if dtm cars can reach 270km/h at hockenheim, why SGT GT500 cars hit just something more than 290km/h at fuji as top speed?
Despite 20kg lighter and >100hp at least more powerful.

Is almost quite unlogical all that can't believe GT500 cars may generate a so huge amount of extra drag compared to cars that follow same aero rules.
Also because, old GT500 specs were heavier (1100kg + driver if I recall well) and much less powerfull, 500-520hp.
No matter what, I remember that during 2012-2013 season, lexus sc430 were the fastest on fuji straight with top speed close to 290km/h!

Honestly, I can't find any sense in this.

We found 2 GTR GT3 EVO at Fuji Speedway.

However we don't know that 2 GTR GT3 EVO belongs to which team. However these two GTR GT3 EVO might be the same car and same team as well because we click the Instagram post with the same car and same link

@Japanese Samurai

Can you help me to explain these post as shown as below there in the webpage?

(Hoped you not hesitate to reply)

Although autosport web magazine claim that Yasuda will stepped down to GT300. However , someone written said that Yasuda will join GT500 lineup partnering with Takaboshi in Sepang tests by twitter.

Hi japanese samurai, can't remember if you were the one who posted this link,

https://twitter.com/SUPERGT_JP/statu...49100460261376

but data are not wrong. 5 lexus were in 295km/h range with only one able to this 298km/h; honda and nissan between 290 and low 295km/h.

Old GT500 specs lexus were however able to mark top speed close to 290km/h (infact old oreca 05 powered by a comparable amount of hp had a top speed in the same range).
All this huge amount of power and torque from new NRE engines and just this slighlty top speed gain?
