We got surprisingly close to another race potentially being cancelled due to heavy rain, but the 2nd round of SUPER GT 2019 at Fuji Speedway on May 4th was able to come to a close with Goodsmile Racing placing 6th! The final minutes of the race was a tough battle for driver TK, who managed to steal back the 6th place position from #33 (a Nissan GT-R) at the last minute. That brings our team’s score to 12.5 points so far for this season, with a 7th place overall team rank.

Round 3 will be at Suzuka on May 25th~26th. Hopefully the weather will be more kind at the next race! Fight, GSR!

Goodsmile Racing also released the first image of the Figma Racing Miku 2019 fully painted! Additionally, GSR has announced that individual item sales of the Figma will be made available sometime soon. If you’d like to obtain the Figma along with additional benefits, the personal sponsors courses are also available!
