Goodsmile Racing emerges victorious at 3rd place in Super GT round 6 this weekend at SUGO. Previously the team performed excellently in round 5 despite the heavy weight handicap and fierce competition, and came out at 2nd place. The outstanding performance brought them to 5th place overall in the GT300 class ranking.

With the latest victory at SUGO, the team now moves up to 2nd place overall and is only behind by 6 points. This puts Goodsmile Racing dangerously closer to winning the championship more than ever, not to mention that there are only two more races left to go. The next race will be held at Autopolis on October 20th~21st. Fight, GSR!
