"This victory is due to the fighting spirit of the drivers and is a credit to everyone on the team. It is truly wonderful."
Is there anything left we haven't said about the new Nissan GT-R? The car has whipped around the Nurburgring in record time, and taken the first two races of the Super GT Series in Japan and Asia. But this is just the start of the car's infamy.
Over the weekend the race version of the Nissan GT-R has taken its third victory in four races in the super GT series. The GT-R have been dominating this year's series to say the least with yet another 1-2 finish, this time the #24 GT-R, who led from start to finish, finished 2.4 seconds before the #22 GT-R.
The #23 GT-R is still in the lead in the championship with 46 points but is quickly gained upon by the #36 SC430 and #22 GT-R due to the 100 kg success ballast in the last two races and an additional 75 kgs imposed in the form of a smaller diameter air restrictor this race.
Driver Seiji Ara’s said: ”This time I believe our car was able to show the original performance of the GT-R. We were able to fight with the front-running GT-R and still there was room to spare.”
