Shinya Hosokawa also confirmed he won't race with #87 this year.
As you can see on the entrant list of the next testing, #87 lineup consists of Kimiya Sato, Yuya Motojima & Tsubasa Takahashi.

@Japanese Samurai

Wow, that very surprising , because last year they in last position in the team standing and they are C- seeded team.

So its the good decision, plus Car Tokai Dream has the relationship with Honda much like Dome.

NOB Taniguchi (#0) complains that mother chassis car is too quick.
He says that #18 or #25 will be the champion if BoP doesn't work.
It is an annual event that he complains to JAF-GT.

Is Taniguchi-san scared that Mother Chassis and/or JAF-GT300 cars will beat their Mercedes-Benz AMG GT car? This is hilarious!

A little bit of "pro-wrasslin'" to get the crowd riled up - that said, the Upgarage 86 did a 1:55 on Saturday, which if I'm not mistaken obliterates the "official" GT300 lap record at Suzuka.

Those cars are really GT500 lites imo. That big Nissan engine probably helps too! The Subaru needs a little more power to keep up too.

As you said he does this every year but hey thereís no one better to drive around BOP.

Iíd be highly surprised if he didnít complain seeing as though he seems to do it every year lol

Kota Sera is reporting annual "Motorsport technology and culture" seminar.
This year's theme was "Challenge to the top! Latest technology which supports the speed."
One of lectures were on Yokohama's GT500 side fin tire.

Yokohama introduced that tire to the race in 2017.
Team Bandoh and Kondo had used in the actual race.
Team Mugen had used in the test.

Fin tire has a 3mm highet of fin on outside of sidewall.

When this fin rotates while running, on the upper side where the relative speed with the air flow becomes larger, it breaks the vortex flowing out of the wheel house, which has the effect of reducing air drag.

On the other hand, at the lower side where the relative speed with the air flow becomes smaller, the air flowing out of the wheel house is discharged to the outside. As a result, the air flow of the splitter (front under panel) is urged to reduce the lift effect.

In short, the downforce increases, so cornering speed increases compared to normal tires.
In fact, drivers had an impression that he felt a more grip feeling.

Q. What do you do with the clutch when you spun?
A. Yeah. I have been worried about it since I first drove a SGT car, but I don't know that because I have never spun yet. I will ask it someone tomorrow.
