  • September 1, 2014 : SGT R6 Suzuka 1000K

    Like for Fuji, we had high expectations for Suzuka, one of my favourite events of the year. The 1.000k race is always a big challenge for the cars, teams and drivers. We qualified in P10, missing the cut off to Q2, which was disappointing since I hoped to fight with the top 3. Even though we did our personal best time around Suzuka and that in hot August, the competition raised the bar even higher and we ended up just about more than a second off Pole.

  • August 11, 2014 : SGT R5 Fuji

    We had high hopes for Fuji going into the weekend. We were strong there at the previous round and fighting for a podium. And Daiki showed our potential by taking P4 in Q1 with only 2 tenth of a second behind the top car. But it was when I started Q2 with the intention of taking the top spot when our weekend turned for the worst.

  • July 22, 2014 : SGT R4 Sugo

    It was a crazy weekend in Sugo with weather and track conditions changing all the time. Since there is a tire war going on, the performances of the cars depended more than usual on their tires. For example when there is heavy rain our Yokohama tires can compete for Pole Position, but when it is only damp it is the opposite. Unfortunately Qualifying was damp, hence we managed only P15.

  • June 24, 2014 : Nurburgring 24h Race

    We worked on the setup more since the VLN R4 and made good progress. I was able to manage P15 which was rather disappointing because I expected to be much closer to the front. The GTR has the potential to run in the top 5 positions, but unfortunately we couldn't extract that time during the Top 30 shoot out.

    We focused more on the race setup rather than on a one lap performance. Hence our race car was much better and also very fast. Because of a penalty I had to take the start in P20. When I came in for the first stop we moved up to around P15 already again and all was looking good for us.

  • June 2, 2014 : SGT R3 Autopolis

    It was an unusual Round 3 for everyone at Autopolis this year as we usually race there in Autumn, but this time we faced very hot conditions. We made again Q2, the second time in a row, but had to settle for P8 in Qualifying in the end. Still a good position for us given that we are usually strong in the race.
