    I highly doubt that. I'm sure the RC F GT3/GT300 will stay. And the 86s that run in GT300 really aren't Toyota's at all. They just have an 86 body on them. Not sure about the future of the Prius following 2016, however.

    Ok, so no threat of a "works" 86 beating the "works" RC F and Prius. Just thought it would be silly to have a Prius beating the RC F in the same family of manufacturer. Doesn't look good for Lexus.

    A similar thought was brought up with Nissan in the VASC program. Wouldn't look right to have 2 R35s losing to 2 Altimas on the same team.

    If I have my timezones correct, the race is Sunday at 1am Pacific/4am Eastern. I'm assuming Nismo TV will be streaming again

    If that's the case, then I'll be watching it on Sunday. No way that I am staying up. :lol:

    Hindy reporting in the live stream that there is a rumour going around that Jenson Button will be testing a Honda GT500 car next week ahead of a slot in the Drego Modulo car.

    Just caught up on the Thailand race.

    Great stuff all around, shame the Motul GT-R had a run-in with a GT300 car. Epic stuff from Jann at the end in GT300, needed a few more laps.

    Is it just me or did the Wakos RC-F get a new livery in this round?

    Bring this to the USA and run it during the Long beach GP weekend. Then my dream of a Cadillac Super GT would be that much closer

    Considering 6 or 7 teams didn't make the (relatively) short trip to Thailand, I can't another overseas race any time soon. Besides, you'd need a much bigger track than Long Beach! Even IMSA runs reduced numbers there.

    Laguna Seca I'd say, would be cool to see them there.

    I'm satisfied...Though I'm surprised no one brought up Daytona yet, what with the GT500 class' crazy aero and the GT6 races and whatnot

    Only because of the distance from Japan is Daytona ruled out unfortunately.

    I've been up for the 1000k every year since they went to the new regs. I think this is going to be annual event for me. You're in Amagasaki?

    You should check out the 1000k. You get good access to the cars for around $150.
