It was a thrilling race for our 23 NISMO GTR. We had an unlucky quali session. I set 2nd best time in Q1 behind Ferrari of Fisichella but in Q3 Chiyo-San had lots of traffic and made a 32nd position.
In the race we knew with colder track temp, GTR could be strong, It was. We recover nicely up to Top 10. In my stint i did really enjoy coming from P22 to p8, then Alex did a great step up to P5.
In the night we kept strong when I was running in 1.58′s half of the stint but a problem with a wheel knock dropped us from a possible podium finish.
We have to be proud of the nice race we had! Thank you RJN NISMO 23 and team mates!
Also fans for great support!
