Event: 2010 Super GT Test Day at Twin Ring Motegi

.

Ah, Monday.  Hope you all had a good race weekend; congrats to Sebastian Vettel for his second 2011 season win!  As promised, I’m posting up some shots of  a Super GT Test Day at the Twin Ring Motegi circuit.  While these shots may be dated a bit, they are still awesome.  This post will be followed up with some race day shots as well.  Unfortunately, the Super GT series has been delayed due to the tragic events in Japan.  I know we’ve heard it a lot, but let’s hope Japan can bounce back and things can return to normal soon.  Thanks again to JDM Clips.  Check out the NSX GT-R FR – looks so mean.

The Epson HSV heading into the garage for some adjustments no doubt.  Isn’t this what test days are all about?

Or maybe the driver was taking a break…

I like the mismatched wheels on this model.  I’m so used to seeing the Keihin HSV that the Epson team livery seems fresh.

Speaking of which – the Keihin HSV was out on track racking up the laps.  It’s great to see a profile of this car.

This shot is awesome.  What a great machine Honda has built.

Joining the Epson HSV in the garage.  How cool would it be to work as a Super GT pit crew?

Here is a familiar face in the world of Super GT.  The GTR35 makes its rounds around the Twin Ring.  Those vented front fenders are wicked looking.

The GTR is joined out on track by the GT300 Tomica 350Z.  If you saw our coverage at TAS, you’ll know that this car did very well in last years season.

Autobacs GT Garaiya.  One of the more unique GT300 competitors.

As the Eneos SC430 pulls in for an inspection…

The Petronas machine is out tearing up some asphalt.

I thought this shot was pretty cool.  Honda Ruckus in the foreground and the new NSX GT-FR Hybrid on stands in that back.  Ultimate contrast!  Mechanics probably use that Ruckus to get around to each paddock.   Thanks again JDM Clips!
