Round 1 cheer illustration by Kanzaki Hiro

Perhaps not the best start to the SuperGT racing season, but Goodsmile Racing definitely isn’t going out without a fight! After placing 15th in the qualifying race on April 7th, GSR was faced with some pretty difficult odds for the Round 1 race at Okayama.

Despite the setback, they managed to pull ahead 7 positions, ending the race in 8th place and gaining 3 points. The next race of the season will be in Fuji on May 3rd~4th. Fight, GSR!
