Self-proclaimed amateur time attacker ‘Orange-san’ has made quite the impact in the small world of Tsukuba time attack. Not only because of the bright orange accent color of his DC2, or his youthful, comedic track side manner; who jokes that his main support comes from Yahoo Auction and Super Viva Home Kasukabe (think Japanese Home Depot). While those qualities alone would make people gravitate towards the Integra in the paddock, it’s what people see up close that garners the most attention to the DC2.
In two weeks the Super GT teams will make their way over to Malaysia for the third Round of the series that takes place at Sepang International Circuit. So, that means I have two more weeks to show you coverage of the Fuji race! Just kidding; I have a few more shots of the race left, so I’ll throw them into this post. I also have some cool shots from qualifying that I’ll sprinkle around throughout the rest of the week. Judging by the traffic, it seems like you guys are enjoying this series.

When Honda announced the end of the NSX’s participation in the Super GT due to new regulations only allowing front-engine, rear-driven cars, fans around the world winced a little.

They announced their new GT spec car towards the end of 2009 as a successor to the popular mid-engined NSX, that was to compete in the GT-500 class in 2010. I believe there were four teams that utilized the HSV; Epson, Weider, Autobacs, and Keihin. Of these teams, Keihin managed the best performance of the season. You can watch the race at Sportsland Sugo here; the spectacular ending, and win for the Keihin team, was a highlight of this season. This win helped them to acheive 3rd place in the championship. If that’s not enough HSV-ness, click over to JDM Clips to see the Keihin HSV in action in Motegi. Thanks to JDM Clips for some great shots.
