I hope they use sensible fuel and tyre settings.
Of course not, this is GT. Instead of having a proper long race with real strategy they give us short races with insanely unrealistic tire wear and fuel wear. In no real world series do tires last 10 minutes or less.

As a show it's more spectacular with tyres changes. But I don't like neither that kind of races.

Anyway, I undestand why they do that for the good of the show.

Kaz's interview after GR Supra Cup(Japanese)
Supra Cup continue to 2020.

-Next year, PlayStation 5 will appear, and a sample using "GT SPORT" was also shown. Various new elements such as ray tracing and haptic technology are scheduled to be added to PS5. What kind of gaming experience do you think will be possible?

Mr. Yamauchi: I am not in a position to talk about that (laughs)

😂

――You talked about PS5 now because it is so real, but is there an element you want to change here as technology evolves in the future?

Mr. Yamauchi: That is a complicated question. Computers have evolved, and the environment surrounding them and changes in human society are also happening at the same time. It's not possible to talk about it yet, but it's probably also true for video games, and since cars are social beings, the car video game "Gran Turismo" is based on computers and such technologies. It is an interesting topic how “Gran Turismo” will change in line with changes in social infrastructure.

Do you really want to watch a Grand Prix distance e-sport race? Lol

Epic end to the race there. Riveting stuff.

The rest of the event wasn't too shabby either but I think LIGHTNING needs a bit of success ballast in his Supra. Made it look tooo easy.😂

Tidgney squeaking into 4th at the end too. I wonder what he could have done with an extra lap to play with though...

Congrats to all.👍

I didn't watch the Manufacturers stream live, but enjoyed the races after watching the video.

I was a touch confused, as I have been before, as to why there is qualifying to get the top six teams, and qualifying again for the first race. 🤔 And then to not allow a driver who did the first qualifying to do the second qualifying seems odd. 😕 That Toyota were so far ahead in the 2nd qualifying was surprising, even if it was Igor Fraga. 😲

And indeed, that advantage came through during first race with the ease in which Toyota won by quite a distance in the end from Porsche.

After the Supra competition, I thought Toyota were to also win the Manufacturers race held in the Toyota Mega Web. ;) 🙄 Thankfully, despite the initial getaway by Toyota to get a gap the various strategies conspired to give a very close finish. The sound of Tom Brooks and Jimmy Broadbent losing it for so long over that lap or so was brilliant. 👍 I hope Jimmy's voice lasts for the whole event. ;)

As someone who has watched many of Tidgney's (Martin Grady) live streams, I thought Audi were going to have a disappointing second race, like the first, as I queried their strategy for second race which again saw them around mid pack half way through the race. That last stint from Tidgney looked epic though, as with the Soft tyres after everyone had done their two stops, he was about 17 seconds behind with 5 laps to go and ended up in the pack of six at the end 2.5 seconds behind Porsche. If the race was a lap longer, I think the result could have been different with the rate he was catching up. But the with a longer race strategies may have been different. ;) 😂 Tidgney always does a vlog of the events he goes to, and I'm looking forward to seeing the event from his point of view. He also reviews his races too. Should be interesting. ;)

I though the change to make the drivers each have a minimum number of laps was good change, and fair to drivers who may travel far, to give them adequate race time, and contribute more to the team. 👍 If because of this PD may have stumbled on a recipe to make the result that close over the two races, then that would be very fortunate. ;) Hopefully future events finish so close and be in doubt right till the end. 🙂

Congratulations to the Porsche team. :cheers: Worthy winners. And didn't they enjoy it. ;)
