Super GT: Victory for Hirakawa, Cassidy in Thailand
Ryo Hirakawa and Nick Cassidy are the winners of the Japanese Super GT Series race at the Chang International Circuit in Thailand. A duo in the #37 Lexus LC 500 converted their pole position into their second win of the season, also taking the lead in the Super GT Series standings ahead of season’s finale at Twin Ring Motegi in November.
In Thailand, Hirakawa/Cassidy won the race ahead of Kazuya Oshima and Andrea Caldarelli in the #6 Lexus. Oshima/Caldarelli are also second in the championship, with six points less than a leading pair, so the championship battle is still wide open.
Victory for Lexus in the GT300 class
In the GT300 class, Yuichi Nakayama and Sho Tsuboio won the race in the #51 LM Corsa Lexus RC F GT3. Nobuteru Taniguchi and Tatsuya Kataoka finished second in the #4 Mercedes-AMG GT3, moving into the championship lead in the GT300 class.
D’Station Racing’s Tomonobu Fujii and Sven Muller finished third in Thailand’s round in the #33 Porsche 911 GT3 R.
