As the Super GT season comes to a close with last week’s Round 8 race, the third place finish by the #38 ZENT CERUMO SC430 team of Kazuki Nakajima & James Rossiter secured enough points to win the season championship.
This marks the end of the SC 430 era in the Super GT GT500 class — next year, the new RC coupe will start a new era of Lexus racing in Japan.
(The ENEOS SUSTINA team of Kazuya Oshima & Yuji Kunimoto won Round 8 in the #6 Lexus SC 430. Impressively, the team remained in first place for the entire race.)
