NISMO discloses Downforce figures of 2013 spec GT-R/2015-16 spec GT-R!

Speed-----2013spec---2015-16spec
150km/h:___400kgf_______520kgf
200km/h:___700kgf_______910kgf
250km/h:__1100kgf______1430kgf
No wonder the new cars are setting lap records. That's a lot more downforce than the previous generation of GT500's.

Has the schedule for 500 miles of Fuji been published yet? The official Super GT does not have the schedule https://supergt.net/races/index/2018/Round5

And as I don't speak Japanese it's bit complicated to find one. Would be nice to know how early should I leave from Tokyo...

Latest Autosport magazine is reporting the exclusive shot of secret RC F GT3 captured at Fuji in May.
It seems that the car is equipped with 19 inch wheel and pitot tube.

Any speculation as to what it could be? I don't think it would be a new GT3 since it's testing on 19" wheels which wouldn't make sense. Maybe a one-make series?

No answer.
Autosport is speculating that development car for cost reduction.

The road surface of Fuji Speedway got damaged due to high temperature.

Autosport web guesses why Lexus dominated in the Thailand round.
This season Honda changed the intercooler position.
It lowered the center of gravity, but, on the other hand, the cooling performance declined.
Probably, Honda took a strategy to acquire a lot of points at cool seasons at the expense of hot season's race.
If so, Lexus and Nissan have to earn points in summer season.
And it is interesting when the second fresh engine will be introduced.
