Goodsmile Racing managed to secure a 2nd place victory with their Mercedes AMG GT3 yesterday during SUPER GT’s Round 5 race at Fuji Speedway, earning them enough points to place them in 1st in SUPER GT by a margin of 9 points!


The weather was cloudy with scheduled rain, although it never started raining during the race. Miku and GSR fans were of course present with the obligatory altar of plushies and figures. GSR started the Round 5 race from 3rd position, and faced tough competition from the #33 M6 and #61 BRZ.

GSR managed to pass the SUBARU BRZ in lap 38, thanks to its superior speed on the track’s straight runs. However, the BMW M6 was just that much faster, and always maintained a >5 second lead for the remainder of the race. However, despite the 2nd place win in the race, GSR is now leading the SUPER GT series. Congratulations!

3 more races to go, and here’s to hoping for GSR to win a 3rd championship. Fight, GSR! The next race will be in Suzuka on August 27th.
