Team Weider Honda Racing finishes at the foot of the podium.
The sixth round of the Super GT Championship was held on 11 September on the superb Fuji Speedway track.
Particularly at ease on Toyota's 'home' circuit, the Lexus did not take long to demonstrate their potential. After flying through the qualification heats, the Lexus SC430s quite simply monopolised the first five places on the starting grid.
In the race, despite many sudden developments and battling tactics, it was finally the Lexus of Team Zent Cerumo which won, giving by the same token the first victory of the season to the Toyota group up-market brand.
As for the Motul teams, team Kogure / Duval played its game well. Currently second in the provisional standings with 52 points, the team can still hope to keep its title.
Behind, we find in 6th position the Nissan Motul Autech of Tréluyer / Motoyama which was once again penalised by tyre temperature problems. Still leading the provisional standings, Yanagida / Quintarelli of team S Road Mola GT-R took 7th place.
In GT300, the Subaru Legacy of team R&D Sport took 6th place.
1// Team Mola – Nissan – 60 pts - Motul
2// Team Honda Weider Racing – Honda – 52 pts - Motul
3// Team Impul – Nissan – 46 pts
