This week, we’re going to dive into japanese motorsport culture. Last winner @Timebandit67 set this theme, here are the details :

«If you ask me which racing cars I like best, I answer: Gr.3, Gr.2, Formula 1 and DTM.

Who doesn't like to remember DTM racing cars like the Mercedes 190, Audi V8 or the Alfa 155 with the legendary V6 sound.

At the moment I am following Formula 1 and the DTM, even if I think it's a shame that Mercedes left the DTM in 2018. But then Aston Martin came along and at the season finale 3 brands from the Super GT (Honda NSX-GT, Nissan GT-R and Lexus LC500), who drove together with the DTM races in the finale in Fuji in November 2019.

That's when I became aware of the Super GT again. I like the Japanese GT cars and I'm also a fan of Jenson Button. I generally like what comes from Japan, be it clocks, cars, electronics or these gambling halls in Tokyo where everything flashes and lights up.»

Super GT (stylized as SUPER GT) is a grand touring car racing series that began in 1993. Originally titled as the Zen Nihon GT Senshuken generally referred to as either the JGTC or the All Japan Grand Touring Car Championship, the series was renamed to Super GT in 2005. It is the top level of sports car racing in Japan. The series is sanctioned by the Japan Automobile Federation (JAF) and run by the GT Association (GTA). Autobacs has served as the title sponsor of the series since 2005.

The JGTC (1993-2004)
The Japanese Grand Touring Championship was established in 1993 by the Japan Automobile Federation (JAF) via its subsidiary company the GTA (GT Association), replacing the defunct All Japan Sports Prototype Championship for Group C cars and the Japanese Touring Car Championship for Group A touring cars, which instead would adopt the supertouring formula. Seeking to prevent the spiraling budgets and one-team/make domination of both series, JGTC imposed strict limits on power, and heavy weight penalties on race winners in an openly stated objective to keep on-track action close with an emphasis on keeping fans happy.

Super GT (2005–present)
The JGTC had planned to hold a race during the 2005 season at the Shanghai International Circuit in China, in addition to the existing overseas round at Sepang in Malaysia. However, holding the series in more than two countries would have meant the JGTC would lose its status as a "national championship" under the International Sporting Code of the FIA, and therefore could not keep "Japanese Championship" in its name. The series would instead be classified as an "international championship" by the FIA, and would therefore require direct authorization from it, rather than the JAF.

Therefore, on December 10, 2004, it was announced that JGTC would be renamed "Super GT", with the goals of "challenge to the world", and "challenge to entertainment". However, despite the name change, Super GT has continued to only hold one overseas race per year; in theory, it could regain its status as a national championship and return to JAF jurisdiction.

In 2014, Super GT and the German touring car series DTM announced the creation of "Class One",which would unify GT500's and DTM's technical regulations, allowing manufacturers to race in both series with a single specification of car. After some delays, full unification of technical regulations is set for 2019.

The cars
The cars are divided into two groups; GT300 and GT500. The names of the categories derive from their traditional maximum horsepower limit - in the early years of the series, GT500 cars would have no more than 500 horsepower, GT300 cars would max out at around 300 hp. However, the current generation of GT500 powerplants produce in excess of 650 horsepower. Meanwhile, in present-day GT300, the horsepower range varies from around 400 to just over 550 horsepower; however, GT300 cars have far less downforce than their GT500 counterparts.

Motorsports is celebrating a world premiere: After years of strategic and technical preliminary work, the DTM and the Japanese SUPER GT series are holding a joint racing event. In two races over 55 minutes plus one lap - one each on Saturday and Sunday, the cars of the two touring car series compete against each other. For the DTM, a total of seven race cars will participate. In addition to DTM champions René Rast and Mike Rockenfeller, Audi also sends two former SUPER GT champions, the French duo Loïc Duval and Benoît Tréluyer, in the race. Two-time DTM champion Marco Wittmann and the two former Formula One drivers, motorsport legend Alex Zanardi and local hero Kamui Kobayashi will race for BMW.

I saw photos of #17 browsing through the app but didn't realise it was an entry for this and thought it looked amazing. My favourite and I also voted #4 and #10 for different reasons. #4 is novelty done brilliantly and the whole vibe of #10 is beautiful.

As always in these competition's the standard was incredibly high. Terrific work as always everyone! :cheers:

Haven't done this before but;

#2 - I love the cleanliness of this, and it just brought back so many childhood memories of having my fingers stuck together with contact cement.
#10 - This is just terrific in every way, such a quality execution and you could easily see this in the real world
#15 - BIG LOGOS! All about the big big title sponsorship logos. I really enjoy this colour scheme and the brand has been applied tremendously well.

My shortlist was about 8/9 strong as well, was a very hard choice.
Congratulations @baldgye ! Nice victory with the most popular car of this round, the NSX.

Same car for @wowbaggerBR who continues his successful path with this second place.

The third step of the podium is shared by @Drex124 , @Raphaele and @RealJaySee .

I’ve shot the cars (except @RealJaySee who have yet to share it), and I’ll update the winners’ post soon.

I'm humbled by so many votes for a design I was never sure about. Huge thanks to everyone who liked. This community is amazing.
