2018 24H Nur.

RCF    2nd place (SP8)   45 (Overall)
ISF  3rd Place (SP8)   46th (Overall)

For the 2018 24 Hours Nürburgring we campaigned a two-car team and forged our path to victory with a second and third place podium finish.  This was the highest ranking finish out of all other teams that participated from Japan.  Although our podium finishes were hard fought and earned as racing conditions were extremely harsh and unpredictable.  Heavy rain and thick fog plagued that course throughout the race and even caused a red flag interruption.  Fortunately, our two-car team finished the race successfully without any major issues even under extreme difficult conditions.  Although we had a strong finish, our goal next year is to win the championship.
