    I think I've seen a JGTC GT-R with Enkeis. I think the road going GT-Rs and Nismo run on Ray's. The GT-R GT3 look like Volks.

    When I think about it, maybe the first GT1 GT-Rs used BBS. Lots of thinking. :D

    Correct. Also, Rays and Volks are the same company.

    Look at the Mark X ready for testing, in the team's distinct green

    Wasn't last year's Phase 01 really similar?

    Pretty similar. It didn't have the grey, though.

    Really liking the Raybrig livery.

    First Super GT race I watched was their 2013 win at Okayama and I've been cheering for them since.

    The Lexus looks super aggressive. Can't wait to see a few more liveries.

    Basically, the Subaru gr3 in GTSport is a Mother Chassis?

    Seems that way to me as well. I just wish there was more interest in the Mother Chassis concept, because the cars that have spawned from it are quite cool IMO.

    I've read a French article about the Lotus Evora MC and that Lotus wasn't happy with this so-called "Lotus". Almost everything except the body isn't a Lotus. But I like it, it brings variety to the GT3 field with the same cars everywhere around the world.

    In truth, you could say the same for GT500 cars. The big difference is that they're all factory-backed while the "Lotus" is a privateer special.
