Considering that the IMPUL livery still uses the old Calsonic logos rather than the Calsonic Kansei corporate logo (which has been in place since 2001) suggests that the company was prepared to allow the use for sentimental reasons, I could potentially see them run something similar to Raybrig (by Stanley) and have Calsonic (by Marelli).


That's if Calsonic don't leave the team which has been a worry for a few years now after their separation from Nissan.

Autopolis will hold the service road bus tour during SGT tire test.
This is an event that runs a bus around the service road beside the main course.
Could this be a popular event like circuit safari?

Tsukakoshi introduced left foot braking from this season because it is easier to turn round.
Baguette also uses left foot braking and strong foot pressure.
So Tsukakoshi adopts strong foot pressure in order to share set-up with Baguette.
Keihin (#17) set the top position in Honda in the Fuji Round, despite the gear troubles in the final corner.
Fuji is a difficult circuit for Honda.
So in Suzuka round, it is expected that they will make a great result.

In qualifying day of Fuji round, Raybrig (#100) were struggling to set-up.
Yamamoto says that the bouncing was so strong that he could not feel under steering and over steering.
After qualifying, they changed their suspension geometry and aerodynamics to suppress bouncing.
This was successful and they won the podium.
Iyoki engineer says that today's set up has become a 2019 spec base set up. we can rate it 70%.

jp.motorsport.com is reporting Tsuchiya Engineering's financial problem.
https://jp.motorsport.com/supergt/ne...-2019/4388923/

*Tsuchiya says "I don't know how many races we can participate exactly because I have not calculated. But as I wrote on Facebook, it is impossible to participate in all races this season at present."
*It was not due to the crash at Okayama, but actually it was a problem that they had before the opening race.
*However, even if they are forced to withdraw in the middle of the season, there is a possibility that they will return to the grid again next year.
*Tsuchiya says. "If we force it, we can participate in the whole race this year, but we don't want to risk the loss of our team."
*In order to continue Tsuchiya Engineering for a long time, it is a judgment as a manager that it might be better to withdraw participation this year.
*Such financial problems are common problems for privateer teams.
*The crash at Okayama is not a trigger. Because it is a problem that tens of millions of yen are not enough.
*The financial issue is always tough, especially this year.

Sorry, it's not an air-con duct, just an air duct.
They improve the duct to cushiony duct pipe.
