  • September 2, 2015 : Suzuka 1000k Race

    After winning the last race in Fuji we had to carry some weight ballast for the Suzuka race. Daiki did a good lap in qualifying but unfortunately we couldn't make it to Q2 and had to settle for P11. The grid position really doesn't matter for a long race like that, so we were still full of hope for the race.
    But on race day it was raining, so that wasn't really what we had hoped for our strategy. Nevertheless we were eager to get some points at least.

  • August 10, 2015 : Super GT Fuji R4

    It was a nice comeback for me to the Super GT Championship with victory at Fuji. For a long time I was waiting for that day as I have not won in a long time in this championship. Last year in Thailand we were almost there, but had to settle for 2nd after some trouble hit us. This win in Fuji is very well deserved for the whole Kondo Racing Team and the super hard working Yokohama Tire team.
    We qualified in P6 after I made some small mistakes in Q2 in sector 3, so we knew that the car had more speed and were looking forward to a strong result.

  • July 27, 2015 : Super GT 2015

    The first half of the 2015 season I spent testing and racing all around the world, including the N24 with Nismo and the Le Mans 24h. Now I'm back in Japan for the remainder of the Super GT season. Yesterday I tested in Sugo for the first time after a long absence. While I was away the pace of the cars has increased significantly, so I was a bit worried to get to grips with it at first. Improved downforce and engine power combined with continuous tire development have brought the Nissan GT-R's victory at the last two rounds, and lap times down even further.

  • June 26, 2015 : New Stilo ST5 Zero Helmet out-performed my expectations at Le Mans 24H

    For a racing driver their crash helmet is a very personal, piece of equipment. Some are literally in ‘love’ with their helmets and its design, while others don’t seem to care too much about it, it is simply an essential tool of our trade. I generally belong to the latter group, so it is kind of unusual for me to feel compelled to write a piece on the new Stilo ST5 Zero Helmet.

  • June 16, 2015 : Le Mans 24H 2015

    It was the big weekend for our LMP1 project at Nissan and its was an exciting 2 weeks in Le Mans to say the least. Since I drove the car the first time in November last year, the entire team has worked relentlessly to prepare 3 cars for the big race. It was a tough schedule and sleep was little but our main target was to bring at least one car to the finish line. And that was what we achieved in the end! So a big thank you to the entire team for that immense effort.
