Goodsmile Racing finished in 23rd place at the fifth round of Super GT at Sportsland Sugo.
The team placed in 7th in the qualifying session prior to the race to determine their starting position for the race.

The race started with the #4 Hatsune Miku AMG getting a good start overtaking the #88 Granseed Lamborghini for 6th place and held on to that position until their scheduled pitstop.

Unfortunately, their chances to score points in the race would go in an instant when the car needed to return to the pits due to a tyre puncture.

After 83 laps of racing around the shortest track on the Super GT season, the #12 Calsonic GT-R wins the race in the GT500 class ending their streak of no wins since 2016, followed by the #61 Suburu BRZ winning the race in the GT300 class for the first time with their next-generation model. The #4 Miku AMG would finish the race in 23rd after their unscheduled pitstop.

With no points scored, Goodsmile Racing is currently 11th in the drivers’ standings. With a 19 points difference with the current team leading the championship.

The next race will be on the 23rd and 24th of October at Autopolis.

Goodsmile Racing finishes the fourth round of Super GT in third place at the Suzuka International Circuit.

Some changes were made to the livery of the #4 Hatsune Miku AMG with the Haregi version of the 2021 Racing Miku on the bonnet of the car since there will be no 10 Hours of Suzuka race this year. And a collaboration with the streetwear brand Anti Social Social Club decorated on the rear wing of the car.

The race started off with the leading GT500 car, the #64 Modulo NSX suffering a brake failure and crashing into the foam barriers bringing out the Full Course Yellow (FCY) and then a safety car shortly after.

The race finished with a dominant Nissan victory in GT500 locking out the podium with the #23 Motul Autech taking the win. While in GT300 the #244 Takanaka-no-yu Supra won with the #4 Miku AMG crossing the finish line in third to secure their first podium this season.

With 11 points scored in this race, Goodsmile Racing currently stands 9th in the Drivers’ Ranking. We’re halfway through the season so it’s not over yet.

The next race will be at Sportsland Sugo on the 11th and 12th of September.

Goodsmile Racing finished in fifth position at the third round of Super GT at the Twin Ring Motegi. Initially the race was to take place at Suzuka on the 30th of May, but the race had to be postponed due to rising COVID-19 cases within the country.

This race was special for the team as they celebrated their 100th race in Super GT. A special commemorative video was uploaded as well as a 1/7 scale figure of the 2021 Racing Miku had been announced.

The #4 Hatsune Miku AMG would start the race in 5th place and would maintain her position until their mandatory pitstop where they only changed their left tyres. The team would gain positions after two cars infront of her collide forcing both cars out of the points. But the chances for a podium would fade as another two cars would overtake the Miku AMG as her tyres were wearing out.

The race would finish with GT500’s reigning champions, the #1 STANELY NSX crossing the finish line followed by the #2 Lotus Evora MC winning the race in the GT300 category.

With 6 points scored in the race, Goodsmile Racing currently stands in 10th place in the drivers’ standings with their best finish so far this season.

The next race will be on the 21st and 22nd of August at the Suzuka International Circuit that was postponed since May.
