fuji

Will there be any additional Asian entries at all? Or are we looking at the same 28 cars we saw in the last 2 races?

I presume so, yes. Is Toyota having 2 LMP1 cars at this race by any chance? Also, I wonder if Toyota will continue the Japanese manufacturer tradition of having a new-spec engine at their home event.

No second car at Fuji.


I hope they don't, they're just asking for trouble doing that. Endurance racing 101 - never make major changes before a big event (I.e. Peugeot 2010). Imagine if the engine blew at Fuji of all places... embarrassing!

Wasn't there a rumour some months ago that JIMGAINER might join this round with their Ferrari?

I'd say, the more the merrier.

Japanese GT series know some great looking cars from well run teams.

Wasn't this supposed to pay full points for the GT300 field for Super GT as well?

Think you are confusing this with the fact that GT300s are to be accepted in the Asian Le Mans Series

Yes, for the rest of the season. They want to give both cars an equal chance for the WEC title.

Furthermore, it would be a bit stupid to go back an ultra after all the effort that the mechanics did to convert the #2 to an e-tron quattro

I'm kind of surprised there's even a designated braking zone in that final sequence. I find it slightly odd that, since there is one, that the braking zone is at Turn 16 rather than Turn 15.

(Just thinking out loud here.)

This race is all or nothing for the #2 car as they have to win both the remaining rounds to win the championship. Having said that, if the #1 car comes second both times in the remaining races to the #2 car, then McNish and Kristensen will win championship by a mere 0.5 points!

They should let a privateer run them for 2013 .

What happens if Toyota wins both? I think these tracks play into their hands. Lots of hard braking, slow speed hybrid zones. Every release zone is 100kmh and under at Fuji.
