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.
