    That looks both terrifying and extremely fun!

    We had a nice group at the 12 Hours of Sebring. I was coming from Cali so couldn't make it. Thanks to Lexus Racing USA for the hospitality.

    Sadly we can't watch Super GT here in the US anymore. NISMO TV was streaming the races live on their Youtube channel but this year Nissan dropped all support and the channel has been renamed Let's Go Racing so there is no English language feed available for the Super GT series. A couple of the drivers most notably Honda driver and former F1 World Champion Jenson Button and Lexus driver Nick Cassidy expressed their feelings that there needs to be an English language broadcast available for Super GT. Super GT came out today saying they were looking into it but I don't know if it will be available for the 2019 season or who will carry the series.

    Did you watch it live, or on the internet? Unfortunately Nismo TV doesn't show it any more and I haven't been able to find another source.

    Lexus also won at Mid-Ohio last year. It was a great last few laps in the race today.

    Motorsport.tv is now carrying the Super GT series. Which Lexus also won the race at Fuji this weekend. You can set up a free account here.

    In advance of the Nürburgring 24 hours endurance race to be held on June 20-23, the storied German racetrack holds a 6-hour Qualification race, known as QF. Toyota brought a GR Supra (in the SP8T Class) and a Lexus LC (in the SP-Pro Class). While the Supra started from 43rd Place on the grid but did not finish, the Lexus LC driven by Takeshi Tsuchiya, Naoya Gamo, Takamitsu Matsui, and Yuichi Nakayama finished the full 6-hour race in the same 24th overall position from which it started.
