Pit stop ban during SC period didn't completely solve the crowded pit stop problems. Pit crews are just be responsive once there is a stranded car on the circuit & pitting the car (if they're lucky enough) before SC period.

I think there is a solution to the crowded pit problem somewhere. The problem is the pitcrews will always be looking to take advantage of any situation

A company representative was arrested on suspicion of defrauding 6 million yen by lying that he could join the GT300 by Lamborghini team if he paid 20 million yen.

So the NSX is now front-engined. A shame to lose diversity, but at least they may get more competitive.
Not sure I like the front of the new Supra either.

There are BS, MI and DL tire service transporters in Suzuka.

However, Honda does not seem to participate in the 2020 vehicle shakedown test.
So why is there a DL transporter?
Perhaps Toyota or Nissan may use DL tires next season?

@Japanese Samurai

I don't think one of the Toyota GR team will switch to Dunlop tires.

Btw , where the YH transporter as both Toyota and Nissan having YH tires team respectively.

@Japanese Samurai

Ok i understand , this test its only for 2020 GT500 car.

Imo , I think one of the Nissan team might switch to Dunlop Tires , possible for (#3) Craftsports GT-R , cause Nissan wanna to widen the tyre strategy like Honda did in 2017 plus the poor results for Nissan with no win in this season.

Good find. Yes, it's correct.
He had participated in Blancpain GT by Hello Kitty livery.

Twitter rumor
Saitama Toyopet Green Brave is developing JAF-GT (MC?) Supra for next season.

Would it be better if Saitama Toyopet team develop a GT86 MC car instead of a Supra?

Unless Toyota allowed the Supra to be used as a basis for the Mother Chassis car, I think it would be logical for them to use the GT86.

After all, only MI and BS were used in the shakedown test.

I don't know how you all feel about the new Supra GT500 but imo, it's the worst looking Toyota GT500 class car so far. The front looks squished and the roof looks like a helmet! I think it even makes the first generation SC430 GT500 look good.

I think it's alright looking. Of course it does look different. We'll see if it is effective. The best car is not always the best looking one
