Tokachi 24hr: Saturday Practice Session – GT-R Amazingly Fast!

July 19, 2008

The Motul Nismo GTR-World R35 GT-R continues to be the center of attention at the Tokachi 24hr endurance race scheduled to start soon.

In practice today, on “S” tires (Bridgestone RE55S) the GT-R set a 2:12.748 lap time. Spectators are saying the car is fast enough to challenge the Super Taikyu 1 (ST1) class down the straights but due to the S tires it’s not cornering as fast. That is amazing however as the ST1 class is the fastest class in the race and on full slicks. The GT-R is entered into the International Production 4 class.

Predictions are that if it rains the AWD advantage the GT-R has may upset a lot of ST1/ST2 teams! Even on a dry circuit some teams are going to be shocked.
