SuperGT 2009: Nissan GT-R Pole to Win in Round 3 at Fuji Speedway

May 4, 2009


Team Nismo MOTUL Autech have made it another pole-to-win victory in round 3 of the SuperGT 2009 championship at Fuji Speedway. It was a very tight finish just 0.219 seconds in front of the #36 Petronas TOM’s SC430 Toyota in second place. The #8 ARTA NSX was 3rd followed by the #24 HIS ADVAN KONDO Racing Nissan GT-R in 4th place.

Further back in the field was the HASEMI TOMICA EBBRO GT-R in 7th place with the #12 IMPUL Calsonic Nissan GT-R in last place after suffering a incident on the first corner when it lost rear traction and speared off the track, impacting an NSX on the way. Race tape fixes all and it was back on the track after a long pit stop though with minimal front downforce though. See the video below for a replay.

The points earned this round keep Kondo Racing on the top of the team championship rankings with 40 championship points, a lead of 3 points of Petronas TOM’s Racing. Nismo moves to 6th spot with 27 points followed by Team Impul in 7th place with 26 points. Still early days in the championships and it’s pretty much still anyone’s at this stage.
