He won't cry. He still gets a good salary. That money talks, he'll not deny.

Hey Juntos, I am an elected representative for my area. But I do commentary and write about cars to earn money (and because I love doing it) - you'll see both things on the twitter feed.

I didn't know you were deeply into politics. Sorry. The first duty of a man is to think for himself, be reminded.



Good to hear Björn Wirdheim is back. Hope he doesn't do a "Wirdheim moment" again.

For the newbies, a Wirdheim moment is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVcM...ature=youtu.be

Autosport web reports Stephane Ratel's interview.
https://www.as-web.jp/sports-car/500609?all

He revealed GT300 tire secret (there is a special tire and customer tire in GT300).

*About GT300 BoP
SRO BoP is supposed to be used under single tire manufacturer race.
This BoP is also used in the GT300, but it will also be the effect of multiple tire manufacturers.
I think Bandoh-san can solve this by changing it single tire manufacturer (joking).
I think that current SRO BoP is almost perfect.
However, in GT300, some team use A-level (special/works spec) tire, and another team uses B-level (customer spec) tire, so I believe that this makes a difference with GT300.
Performance adjustment is almost perfect level equality.

I don't see any secret being revealed. A well-informed Super GT follower knows that all tire manufacturers provide different kind of tires according to their priorities in GT300 class. It has been like this for ages.

Ah, Ratel tells just about a multi make tire situation.
I misunderstood that Ratel was saying the different tire treatment mainly in Yokohama user.
There is an open secret that Yokohama supplies old spec tire for weak privateer team.

That must make some teams a little upset, unless they get those tires for a lower cost? Do you know if that is mentioned?

Of course the details are unknown.
However, it is rumored that tire spec will be different between works team and others.
And, ironically, it seems that works team can use it at free, and other teams must buy it.
I think this might be due to the limited production equipment.

According to Autosport magazine,
LC500 GT500 has a character that if you use used front splitter, it will become a heavy understeering.
Team Cerumo (#38) had been suffered this trouble first few race in last year.

According to Subaru motorsport magazine column,
-GTA had issued a special bulletin allowing the louver and lip in the body opening to JAF-GT cars as a measure against heat for summer race (Thailand, Fuji, Autopolis, SUGO).
1)You can add louver or lip up to 50 mm high to the (bonnet) opening for heat dissipation.
2)The engine cannot be seen from above, but it can be seen up to 50% only in summer.

jp.motorsport.com reports Team Studie BOB Suzuki interview.
https://jp.motorsport.com/bes/news/2...t-new/4491898/
https://jp.motorsport.com/bes/news/b...uture/4492083/

*The running cost of GT4 is about half that of GT3.
*Team Studie's GT4 project might be finished by 2019 season.
Main reason is F82 M4's production is finished by this season.
We want to use motor sports for BMW's PR and marketing.
In that sense, if the base vehicle is not the current production vehicle, the attraction is halved.
*As both GT4 and GT3 are no longer production vehicles, we are wondering how to plan for participation after 2020.
*However, the relationship with BMW Japan and BMW Motorsport has become stronger in recent years.
*BMW would not be willing to suspend our participation for a year.
*However, I do not know yet whether we will race by using M6GT3 or using M4GT4.
*It is prompted by BMW that we should return to SGT.
*BMW Motorsport believes that SGT has higher priority than Blancpain GT Asia.
They regret that there are no BMW cars in the SGT.
*Of course we, as a team Studie, would like to continue racing activity, but it is bothering what to do in 2020.
