@rjoconnell

I think Chiyo will enter Blancpain GT Series. That's all

Speaking about NSX GT3's

CarGuy (strongly possible), Drago Corse ,UPGARAGE, a team by Yuji Ide

For Drago I bet they don't have any money to participate SUPER GT unless they partner with another team

For UPGARAGE , if they want to used NSX GT3 they better divorced with Team Bandoh first because they officially switch to NSX GT3.

By the way , I want to ask you about a team by Yuji Ide , its that is that Team TTO is his team or not?

I wonder if that foreign Lexus driver will be Jose Maria Lopez or someone else driving in their lmp1's?

Just like what I thought. There are camouflages installed at several aero parts on #99 car at HRTD.

According to F1-stinger website (by Masami Yamaguchi),
paddock rumor says that Button will participate in GT500 from new team which have been launched by the company related to Honda.

With some existing rumors which mention some new drivers at Honda, I think it's make sense for an additional car. You can't simply throw 2017 drivers for newcomers.

Also, I have never seen 16 GT500 cars on the grid after 2008 season.
