It's a half-joke that came out in that round-table talk.
Team Tsuchiya (#25) can take a no-tire-change strategy.
Of course Tsuchiya have their own efforts to take that strategy,
however FIA-GT3 users say it is unfair.
So Tsuchiya feel that they don't have any whereabouts in GT300 class.
Therefore, they concluded that JAF-GT300 and MC should move to the privateer class of JAF-GT500.
So This is not an official proposal.

Then the MC 86, Toyota Prius GT, Subaru BRZ and Lotus Evora MC will be in GT500 the next year. Will the engine be the same of this year with more power? Or will that engine be the same of GT 500?

Sounds like it's a proposal, not so much a guarantee.

Yes. it's just a proposal in the magazine.
GTA won't accept it.
But imagine Tsuchiya challenges to factory GT500 teams.
Engine swap will be needed. But MC chassis could be used in the GT500 field.

Nope, not gonna happen if you ask me. I mean, the last time we got a privateer GT500 team was in 2009 and still got beaten by works team.

Given massive amounts of resources from GT500 manufacturers, I don't think there will be competitive privateer team in GT500.

Suppose that a team like Tsuchiya Engineering wants to step up to GT500, they have to join as Lexus GT500 squad, assuming they still keeping ties with Toyota brand.

Their ability to keep single set of tyres in 2 stints is the testimony of how the team crafts the strategy in the race & knowing their car's potential.

That tire life might have to do with the car itself and not so much the team. I don't know if that would carry over into GT500 unless they built a car themselves on the shared chassis/monocoque. But for which manufacturer? A new one would be cool to see but I feel it's all wishful thinking.

Hoping that it's an expansion, not a replacement over an existing team.

Helmut Marko (RedBull) visited Super Formula Motegi round.
He says that Red Bull will send two RB junior driver to Super Formula next season.
And they are considering to support SGT program as Red Bull.
They also want to expand driver researching program also in Japan.

Upcoming Autosport magazine reports Class 1 regulations and future SGT.
Surprisingly, Honda might withdraw from SGT in 2020.
In Class 1 regulations, there is a minimum production number regulations (100 cars) for base car. This is a problem for Honda.
Autosport is saying the gossip that Honda might use Aston martin chassis in connection with Red Bull.

Honda can't produce 100 cars? Is this because of the mid engine layout of the NSX? It would be weird to see Aston Martin instead of a Honda in Super GT.
