  • November 17, 2015 : Super GT R8 Motegi

    After our disappointing race in Autopolis 2 weeks ago, we were hoping for more luck for the season finale. But weather wasn't really helpful for us, with it being wet until just the second stint of the race. So we just managed to qualify in P11. That would have still put us for a shot to get to the podium as we proved last year starting from last, that we could end up in P4. But we need dry conditions for that.

  • November 3, 2015 : Super GT R7 Autopolis

    We came with high hopes to Autopolis, especially after we dominated the testing a month earlier there. In Qualifying we were able to achieve P4 which put us in a good position for the race. Unfortunately in the race things didn't go as planned, but such is racing. I took the start and was able to maintain P4 while I was looking after the tires, as Autopolis is one of the toughest circuits for tire wear.

  • September 22, 2015 : P3 in Sugo!

    After a tough Suzuka race we were finally back in good shape in Sugo. Starting from P5, we could achieve our second podium position of the year. Unfortunately it was not the top spot like in Fuji, but nevertheless a nice result for us. I took the start and immediately realised that our car balance was very good in the race and we had one of the fastest car on that day. But just speed is not everything at this very tight circuit.

  • September 9, 2015 : Driving on the Edge (DOE V2)

    I made a quick trip to the UK this week for some meetings and to receive the first Hard Back copies of the 2nd Edition of Driving on the Edge in English.

    What’s different to the 1st Edition? I have updated the braking section with one new technique to counter snap oversteer at corner entries and added more details regarding circuit preparation. Other than that there are some different pictures and graphs in it.

    As a driver (even at my age!), I am still learning every time I get in a racing car and I hope that you can continue to learn from this book as well.

  • 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.
