VortexManagment should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I remembered that in 2018 NISMO disclosed 2015 downforce figures, is someone aware of something similar today? About the DF of 2018/2017 cars, revealed in some Autosport report or similar.

Two big stories today.


Hayashi Telempu SHADE Racing officially declared their entry into the GT300 class:
http://www.shade-racing.com/informat.../super-gt.html


And Tsutomu Tojo, long time chief engineer at TOM's, is leaving to join ROOKIE Racing in 2022.

Wonder if they are out of racing or just Super GT. Maybe the increase of GTWC Asia Japanese rounds has been a lure, and GT3 is hardly favoured in GT300 these days

Tokyo Auto Salon is this weekend in Chiba.


Honda will announce their full range of racing activities, including Super GT, Friday at 9 AM GMT:

BMW Team Studie (x CSL) will also announce their 2022 programme, built around the M4 GT3, on 28 January. Bob Suzuki has said that this will be "the most significant change" since their first season as a standalone team in 2014, perhaps teasing a move back to an all-pro driver lineup.

Nice to see Team Studie making big changes for this year's championship.

Of course, I'm really curious regarding Honda's racing activities ever since they left Formula One last year.

Thanks for sharing. Both cars look great and I'm amazed that the GT3 concept looks like a rendering but it is real!

Honda's lineup for Super GT and Super Formula announced:

Super GT (GT500):
- #8 ARTA: Tomoki Nojiri / Nirei Fukuzumi
- #16 Mugen: Ukyo Sasahara / Toshiki Oyu
- #17 Astemo: Koudai Tsukakoshi / Nobuharu Matsushita
- #64 Nakajima: Takuya Izawa / Hiroki Otsu
- #100 Kunimitsu: Naoki Yamamoto / Tadasuke Makino

No changes except for Matsushita joining Astemo Real Racing.

Super GT (GT300):
- #18 UpGarage: Takashi Kobayashi / Kakunoshin Ota
- #55 ARTA: Hideki Mutoh / Iori Kimura

Two new drivers, Kakunoshin Ota and Iori Kimura join the GT300 lineup. And Shinichi Takagi isn't part of the GT300 lineup, so he's probably retiring. And Ren Sato...well, I guess I know why.

Super Formula:
- Team Mugen: Tomoki Nojiri
- Dandelion Racing: Tadasuke Makino / Hiroki Otsu
- Drago Corse: Nirei Fukuzumi
- B-Max Racing: Nobuharu Matsushita / TBA
- Nakajima Racing: Naoki Yamamoto / Toshiki Oyu
- Team Goh: Ren Sato / TBA

Koudai Tsukakoshi is not part of the Super Formula line-up. There are a few driver moves here and there. Now that Ren Sato is lined up in Team Goh, I guess it's Super Formula focus?

As per Ren Sato we still need see if he will be go to Drago Corse GT300 or not since Drago not release driver name yet, and I suspect Honda didn't really want losing him since I think last year before incident happen lot people dabbed him have lot potential.

I think it just like they want he refocusing on speed and stability.

The GR86 is a great evolution over the MC86 car, although I'm curious about Toyota's new GT3 concept car 'cause I have a feeling that they might launch a single-make series with that car.
