    Great to see Nakajima Racing back on pole, it's their first pole position since 2010.

    And for Tadasuke Makino, he's the first driver to take pole position in his debut in the series since Roberto Moreno in Nov. 1984 at Suzuka - 35 years ago.

    It's been 45 years since a driver won their first race in the series - Masahiro Hasemi, in September 1974 - the second season of the championship! Neither, of course, had happened in the "modern era" from 1996 to today.

    Love the close racing. Especially now, after the SC.

    Considering they’re on YouTube, you almost can as it is, since the PS4 has a built in web browser.

    Actually, if PD links the videos in the information tab as some sort of cross-promotion, then you’d basically have exactly what you’re talking about.

    Err? YouTube is on the PS4. There's no need for the browser.

    These being added to GTS has me interested in watching the series. Shame about Super GT not similarly caring about streaming.

    A combination of these being added to GTS and being racing on YT had me interested and I watched it last Sunday when I woke up. Was a great race. Shame for Palou though.

    Really cool that this series is free to watch on you tube live and replay. The closer** racing is fun to watch.
