Goodsmile Racing has unveiled their Haregi version of the 2021 Racing Miku illustrated by En Morikura. Miku is seen wearing a pink haregi with a mix of maid aesthetics.

The haregi version is meant to be for the 10 Hours of Suzuka but the race was announced back in March earlier this year that it will be cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. Despite the disappointment from the team, they wrapped the new Racing Miku on a spare bonnet for display at the Akiba CO Gallery.

Goodsmile Racing finishes the second round of Super GT in eighth position at Fuji Speedway. The race took place on a Tuesday as it was the weeklong holidays of Golden Week in Japan.

The #4 Hatsune Miku AMG would start in 11th position after an improvement from their last round in qualifying prior to the race. The race would see the first use of the Full Course Yellow (FCY) meaning all cars on track must slow down and overtaking is not allowed. The same rule applies like with the safety car that the pit lane closes during a Full Course Yellow.


The 500km long race would finish with the #17 Astemo NSX winning in GT500 and the #60 Syntium GR Supra winning in GT300. The #4 Miku AMG would finish in 8th with some cars in front of her were having problems falling down the grid before the finish.


With 3 points scored. Goodsmile Racing is currently 13th in the drivers’ standings. The next race will be on the 29th and 30th of May at the Suzuka International Circuit.
