From the recent Goodsmile Racing’s live stream comes a Racing Miku visual for the 2019 SUZUKA 10 HOURS race, to which the team will be participating in next month. Drawn by the artist Annin Oiko with direction by Shigeto Koyama, she wears a beautiful pink haregi surrounded in cherry blossoms.

The machine featuring the design is expected at the upcoming 2019 SUZUKA 10 HOURS race, which will be hled at Suzuka circuit on August 23rd~25th. She’s the also second Racing Miku Haregi ver. design to date since Tony Taka’s in 2017-2018. Fight, GSR!

Back in April, Goodsmile Racing announced that they would return to the 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps. But rather than having the usual Racing Miku for their car livery, the team will collaborate with TYPE-MOON RACING to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Fate series!

The #00 Goodsmile Racing & TYPE-MOON RACING Mercedes-AMG GT3 will be driven by the two Super GT drivers of Nobuteru Taniguchi (JPN) and Tatsuya Kataoka (JPN) with their third driver being Adam Christodoulou (GBR), known for winning the 24 Hours of Dubai and 24 Hours of Nürburgring.

The other two cars with itasha liveries recently announced for the race are the #04 and #06 Mercedes-AMG Black Falcon cars. The #04 car is wrapped up with visuals of the anime Promare by Studio Trigger and is driven by Maro Engel (GER), Luca Stolz (GER) and Yelmer Buurman (NLD). The #06 car is wrapped up with Hatsune Miku using the V4X main visual by iXima and is driven by Abdulaziz Al Faisal (KSA), Hubert Haupt (GER), Patrick Assenheimer (GER) and Gabriele Piana (ITA).

The race will take place from July 26th to July 28th, and we wish both teams good luck for the upcoming endurance race!

Last weekend was Round 4 of SUPER GT, which took place at the Chang International circuit at Buriram in Thailand. Goodsmile Racing finished 8th in qualifying for the start of the race the following day.

The race started off clean with all the cars making it through without colliding into each other. Things were calm until teams started to do their pit stops. The #4 Hatsune Miku AMG would stay out as other teams pitted. But suddenly the #16 Motul Mugen NSX-GT, #8 ARTA NSX-GT and #1 Raybrig NSX-GT in the GT500 category all collided bringing the Safety Car out which would compromise the #4 Miku AMG, as they have yet to make their mandatory pit stop. And by the rules, the pit lane is closed during the Safety Car.

As the race restarted, the team would eventually pit for a driver change and refuel but kept the same tires. The #4 Miku AMG would leave the pit lane in 14th place. In the end the team would cross the finish line in 13th, overtaking the #7 D’station Aston Martin Vantage as they suffered a blown tire during the closing stages of the race. The team went up to 12th as the #21 Hitotsuyama Audi dropped position, possibly for failing post-race inspections.

Goodsmile Racing now stands 11th in the championship standing. We may only be halfway through the season, but the team still has a chance in fighting for the championship. The next race will be at Fuji International Speedway on the 3rd and 4th of August for the endurance round of the season. Fight, GSR!
