With just days to go now, we’re getting excited for the start of the new Autobacs Super GT season at Okayama International Circuit.
In years past, it was pretty hard for anyone outside of Japan to follow the famous GT racing series, but thanks to Nismo TV, the entire 2017 championship is once again being streamed live (and free!) on YouTube, with English commentary to boot.
With new GT500 chassis regulations coming into effect this season, it’s all fresh machinery in the top-tier class, and that’s reason alone to watch the action unfold at the Okayama GT 300km Race this coming Sunday (Japan time).
Last year it was Lexus that dominated the championship podium, but can they do it again? The LC500 certainly looks the part. We can’t forget that Nissan GT-R Nismo GT500s finished first and third at Okayama in 2016 though, so it will be interesting to see who gets the first points on the board. Let’s hear your predictions for the Super GT season ahead in the comments section below.
