    I've done some searching with Google, but all I've found is in Japanese.

    I want to know more about this. I've seen some cars from that series on BMI. I think it's an interesting race.

    Thanks in advance.

    http://www.so-net.ne.jp/s-taikyu/

    ...is the official website when I did a quick Yahoo! search for it. To translate the text, someone mentioned this site below this paragraph:

    http://www.infoseek.co.jp/Honyaku?pg=honyaku_top.html

    All you'd have to do is take the text, copy it, paste it into the left window, and you'd translate the information piece-by-piece. Of course, you cannot do this with pictures. Only works on text. If you see a text symbol with the text you're looking at, it can be copied and pasted. So try out the site above with the information from the Super Taikyu series. Don't thank me. It was someone in the Gran Turismo 4 topics. I don't know who typed that, so thank that person for the translation site.

    There's something like 5 different racing classes, from Skylines and Supras at the top to four-door Civics and Demios racing one another.

    I've been able to find a lot of the "real" racing mods in GT2 by seraching though all the links and using Google with Super Taikyu in the search fields.

    Holy thread bump Batman.

    SGT Network may start trying to cover this. It's considerably trickier than SFormula or Super GT though.

    Thats good because, there's always been such a good grouping of classes. Still allowing the Integra, RX-7 and S2000 to race. I dig the ST-5 class and the Spoon S2000 mainly. Now I find, there are two Spoon S2000s on the grid :drool:

    Test day

    S-Tai has everything I'd want in a series.

    Have a feeling that ST-R is gonna be a hit, though it may take until 2018 before the numbers really get competitive.

    Though hopefully not at the expense of some of the lower-ranked production categories.

    Also with the GT4 class. With cars like McLaren, plus the M4 and AMG GT to be ready for GT4, it's going to be cheaper than GT3. I also wonder how close a GT4 car is in performance to ST3.

    I asked myself a similar question last year and did a comparison of lap times between ST3 cars in S-Tai and the M235i Racing cars in VLN and Creventic. Turns out the lap times are very similar in terms of percentage of GT3 lap times in the their respective race series. GT4 cars are a few seconds (4-6 typically) faster than M235i Racing cars when they race together, so it would follow that GT4 cars are a fair bit faster than ST3 cars.

    I guess it needs some momentum or promotion like TCR.

    I'd like to see a couple more sedans make to the series as well.

    Mentions the race at Motegi, will be 200 minutes as opposed to a 5hour race. Also a 2 race system. Google translator stopped at the "100km/h" speed difference of the ST-X class and ST-5.

    I wonder if teams would run the Focus RS and AMG A45 at some stage.

    Endless Sports reveals their ST-X and ST-4 driver lineups:
    http://supertaikyu.com/teamrelease/data/2017/es.pdf

    Yukinori "Yuke" Taniguchi, Hideki Yamauchi, and Yuya Motojima will drive the #3 Nissan GT-R GT3.
    Ryo Ogawa, Tsubasa Takahashi, and Masaya Hanazato will drive the #13 Toyota 86 that won the ST-4 title last year.

    FYI: Taniguchi is the founder of longtime pro-wrestling video game developers Yuke's, and Ogawa is the son of the late Toyota racing legend Hitoshi Ogawa.

    In addition, highlights from all six Super Taikyu rounds will be broadcast on the BS11 network, on a one-week delay, and the series is making a big social media push this year using Twitter and YouTube Live:
