Pity. But you never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from.


In GT300 I noticed the Hoppy 86 MC took multiple gambles on tyre strategy throughout the race. They could have won this without going wild.

Several of the teams are funded by various tyre companies, will these teams be happy to race on control tyres ?

Joint events are economically different events from SGT/DTM series.
Joint events will be promoted by ITR and GTA themselves.
Bandoh says that GTA will cover all team's traveling costs to Germany and accommodation fees.

Where will he get the money? From the German automakers?

Should be enough fan support if they advertise it. Sure the ITR will be best served to do so.

And what is that business model? Rights, sponsorships and ticket sales?

Details were not told.
Realistically speaking, it will be difficult to make a profit at only two joint events.
Therefore, auto manufacturers will pay that cost principal as initial cost.
GTA and ITR want to expand joint events (Europe*2, USA*2, Asia*2) at off seasons of SGT / DTM series.
If this plan is successful, joint events might succeed as a business.

Looked to me the Bridgestone tires worked better at Fuji.

Didn't Hankook give up on Super GT for a good reason?

Autosport magazine reports SGT engineer's round-table talk by Tsutomu Tojo (Tom's), Kotaro Tanaka (LeMans) and Takeshi Tsuchiya (Tsuchiya engineering).

-JAF-GT300MC is about 200kg lighter than FIA-GT3. But it generates only 470ps. (FIA-GT3: 600ps)
-Although MC car can run quick if it runs alone, it is difficult to overtake FIA-GT3 cars in actual racing. However, Tsuchiya have been told that they are unfair from FIA-GT3 users.
-They make a proposal that JAF-GT300 and MC should move to privateer class of JAF-GT500.
-Asian teams (mainly outside of Japan) are very rich, so they could buy FIA-GT3 car. But customer team can not touch important parts of FIA-GT3 cars, so no experience is accumulated in Asian engineers and mechanics. Technically speaking, it is in the colonies of European manufacturers.
