The first race of 2014’s SUPER GT racing season has come to an end, with Good Smile Company’s own Good Smile Racing team emerging with a 1st place victory at the Okayama international circuit. Congratulations!

GSR’s vehicle is a BMW Z4 wrapped in 2014’s Racing design for Hatsune Miku, and competes in the GT300 racing class. There was 24 competitors total this year for the GT300 class, and 15 for the GT500 class.

For much of the race, GSR’s own Z4 (vehicle #4) was fighting neck and neck against another Z4 (vehicle #7) owned by TEAM STUDIE. The fight between the two even sparked this hilarious parody image of the two racers. Source currently unknown.

Note: TEAM STUDIE uses Kuma (aka, “pedobear”) as their mascot.

Photos from the race.

 
GSR is off to a great start, and hopefully they can keep up this performance throughout the season. And don’t forget, you can still pledge your sponsorship support to receive a 2014 Racing Miku Nendoroid, among other goodies! Nendoroid sponsorship courses will close on May 5th JST.
