IMO, Takashi Kobayashi will drive Audi or Lamborghini GT3 car if there have the seat available. He most likely drive Audi if Phoenix Asia is participating SUPER GT or Lamboghini if one of the driver either retired or transfer to other team.


Plus if Naoya Gamou is transfer to Toyota or Lexus team , then LEON AMG is the best choice for him because of Brigdestone tires.

Based on his results at GT300 class, I think he's deserved for racing with other top GT300 teams (with assumption that switching to other brands in GT500 is impossible). He will be the great asset (especially for soon-to-be-announced newcomer teams).

Hmmmm. We think that Kohei Hirate or Takashi Kobayashi will be this lineup for Team UPGARAGE (#18) it seems that Team UPGARAGE continue to partner with Team Bandoh as well.

By the way do you have any reference related for this news ????

Hmmm , do you think UPGARAGE will split up with Team Bandoh and they used NSX GT3????

If it is , Nakayama and Kobayashi will be the perfect lineup.

Yes. Nakayama/Kobayashi and NSX with BS tire will be strong contender.

About Subaru
They didn't announce SGT line-up.
If they hire former GT500 driver, Iguchi or Yamauchi will be out.
It contradicts the policy to bring up young drivers.

Excuse me , do you have any references for Subaru news one?

Hmmm, what if Rintaro Kubo joining Subaru GT300 lineup????
However , both Iguchi and Yamauchi present in TAS Auto Show in Subaru booth

No news source.
But every year, Subaru had announced SGT line-up at Tokyo Auto Salon.
However, this year, no announcement yet.
This is evidence that they are considering driver lineup.

Ok , i get it

But i will select Rintaro Kubo as the Subaru GT300 driver candidate as he participate 86/BRZ Race with CG ROBOT RACING TEAM and he partner with Iguchi so he is the strong candidate for Subaru GT300 lineup.

Do you agree with this statement?

Twitter rumor. (TAS talk show)
UPGARAGE (#18) won't use NSX GT3. They use MC86 also this year.
And they are considering to participate in Suzuka 10h race.

A lot of "off-record" talk shows by driver/director are held every year in TAS.
