    Cassidy's accent is so un-Kiwi-like.

    I gave up the feed at the start. No thanks.

    Yeah, the commentators aren't great. Just thankful that the stream isn't behind a paywall. I'll take it.

    The commentators don’t seem to have a clue about the different tyre manufacturers/compounds and the massive effect this has on the race.

    Good race. Nice to see a live SuperGT race again.

    What I saw before my power cut out, which was I think around lap 40 ish, was pretty nice. Good on motorsport.tv for not having any commercials mid race.

    Spent all day avoiding the result - try and find the race to watch back on the Motorsport website and have it ruined for me. Would be fine if it were Sam Collins and Rob Barff because they can actually commentate. Will wait for the official highlights/race re-run and watch that instead.

    Just watched the Suzuka race, great race, atrocious commentary. Fuji was also a great race and the commentary was tolerable at least, but this one was terrible.

    First an exhibition race in Europe with DTM, if I can recall correctly, 1 of each manufacturers from GT500.

    Then a race in Japan with several DTM cars and they can’t use DRS.

    So excited about it. Do you know which race from the season? Nürb. GP?

    Congratulations to the #6 Wako's Lexus and #87 T-DASH Lamborghini for their outstanding class victories - 11th and 13th to 1st respectively! Massive credit to Saitama Toyopet GreenBrave for their best run to date - pole and 2nd place in GT300. Some great battles in GT300 in the closing hours, but I wish the commentary for the Motorsport.tv feed was a bit more engaging.

    Great call by Wako's to pit right before that safety car was called. That won them the race. One of the commentators massacred "Hatsune Miku" and never tried it again the whole race.

    Honda should retire from GT 500 than he makes a FR-NSX or such a kind FR.

    No. Remember 2010-2013? Hell they even tried developing an FR NSX back in the late 2000's. Unfortunate if true, but this is not unprecedented.

    Was late to live, but really glad Lexus shines at home track in both categories:).

    2020 spec GT500 cars have been unveiled. I'm still not totally sold on the looks of the Supra road car but the GT500 version does look pretty badass.



    Edit: Apparently the NSX is now front engined?

    Awesome! I needs that Supra in you-know-what. About the NSX, yes, in Post #107.

    I think the Supra looks a little awkward. I think the base styling characteristics don't lend themselves well to such an advanced aero package. It is still a pretty cool looking thing as all GT500 cars are, but it is a minor disappointment. For me the Lexus LC is far better looking.

    NSX > GT-R > Supra for me. For the previous two generations it was Lexus. I'd love to see them go to DTM but there is next to no chance.

    GT-R looks more awkward

    NSX look busy and kind of standard

    The lights kill the Supra and that air inlet. Liveries should cure that though. Supra for me anyway.

    Thanks, I missed that. :dunce::tup: Got to catch up, still haven't got around to watching the Autopolis round yet.
    Need to see more angles first but based on those images, I am leaning towards the Supra too.

    Concept looked much cleaner. However, I do like the race version's wheels.

    Supra looks awesome.

    Too bad NSX didn't came up with more noticeable changes in looks in their new FR car. Quite sad, how unique Honda was in this series.

    Also, any news on gt300 entries with LC? Can't accept that Lexus disappear from series, at least one team should pick RC F or LC 500, if it's actually possible to downgrade to regulations.
