    The Supra is starting to grow on me a little bit. It looks quite good in race trim. Just a shame that we have to until next year to see it on track.

    Love Super GT, but for me, this season is a wash until next year, when the Supra debuts.

    Hope the SGT/DTM event, winds up being a hit.

    Should DTM still have a separate thread or merge with this thread, due to Class 1 rules?

    Anyway, here's Audi.

    Saw a short video on SuperGT Twitter page of Team UPGARAGE unloading a GT3 NSX. Wasn't aware that they had switched cars for this season. As cool as the Honda is, I'm going to miss the 86.

    There's still the Hoppy and Team Mach 86s. Not forgetting the Mark X and Lotus Evora mother chassis cars too.

    I think the GT300 class will be worth watching this year too. It'll be interesting to see how the brand new Aston and McLaren get on.

    And then the joint Class One race is a really exciting prospect in my opinion.

    Does anyone know if the ex-NISMO TV YouTube channel will still be broadcasting this?

    I see they changed their name. Any word on what's happening with them? I would assume since it's not NISMO branded anymore that the live streams we've come to love will no longer be available. Man, Nissan's racing programs going down the tubes. Such a shame.

    Edit:

    Hopefully they can get it sorted soon. Super GT is one of the few series I'm still willing to do whatever I can to watch live(except Thailand, that time slot is rough), even though you can always watch later. I was all excited for the race this weekend and it somehow never dawned on me that all of Nissan's recent follies and changes might affect the race broadcast lol.

    That stinks. I really liked the NISMO channel. Hopefully they can get things worked out. Not sure I'm ready to pay for another streaming service though.

    Absolutely gutted there doesn't look to be an international streaming solution as yet.

    Cassidy, Button, Mardenborough et al aren't happy about it and they're going in to bat for international viewers, but I don't fancy their chances. Sam Collins and co want to at least get access to a live feed that they can broadcast, but again, extremely unlikely to happen this close to the race :(

    So much wasted potential. Hoping they can pull through, I'm not a fan of watching something that was live.
