The #4 Hatsune Miku AMG would start in 11th position after an improvement from their last round in qualifying prior to the race. The race would see the first use of the Full Course Yellow (FCY) meaning all cars on track must slow down and overtaking is not allowed. The same rule applies like with the safety car that the pit lane closes during a Full Course Yellow.
The 500km long race would finish with the #17 Astemo NSX winning in GT500 and the #60 Syntium GR Supra winning in GT300. The #4 Miku AMG would finish in 8th with some cars in front of her were having problems falling down the grid before the finish.
With 3 points scored. Goodsmile Racing is currently 13th in the drivers’ standings. The next race will be on the 29th and 30th of May at the Suzuka International Circuit.
