SuperGT Round 9: Results – Victory for Calsonic IMPUL GT-R

November 9, 2008

For the second time this season the #12 Calsonic IMPUL Nissan GT-R has managed a win. In the final round of the SuperGT 2008 season at Fuji Speedway on a cold semi-damp track many teams gambled on the weather keeping slick tires on for the race start. For this 66 lap race this was to be a critical part of the strategy to get right.

Starting from 12th position on the grid the Calsonic team worked hard and by lap 16 the Calsonic GT-R was second from the front followed by the #23 XANAVI Nismo GT-R. On lap 17 Calsonic made their move and were in front.

Rain started at lap 29 causing many teams to pit at the same time to switch to rain tires. Calsonic maintained their lead and in fact lead the race until the very end. By the chequered flag they had built an impressive lead of 12 seconds up in adverse conditions.

Congratulations team and time to celebrate a season well done!
