SuperGT Round 8: Win for NISMO Xanavi GT-R!

October 20, 2008

Nismo have pulled off a great victory this weekend as the #23 XANAVI NISMO GT-R finishes in first place after qualifying in pole in yesterday’s Super Lap. The win sees them walk away with maximum points for the round and puts them 14 points in the lead on the championship table.

In terms of team rankings, this puts Nismo in second place just 5 points behind Petronas Toyota Team Tom’s.

With just one race left in the series a GT-R debut series championship win looks like a real possibility. A well deserved one too considering so far GT-Rs have won 6 of the 8 races.

Not a bad result for other teams either today, #22 MOTUL AUTECH GT-R was forced to start in last place after technical inspection decided their rear wing was slightly too high. They battled up 11 places to finish 5th. Quite an achievement as Autopolis circuit offers very few overtaking opportunities. The #3 YellowHat YMS Tomica GT-R finished next in 6th place.

A few weeks remain now until the finale of SuperGT series 2008 with round 9 at Fuji on the 9th of November. Stay tuned for updates as we get closer.
