The second round of the Asian Le Mans Series came to a close at Fuji Speedway with an impressive win in the SGT Class by Team Mugen and their #15 CR-Z driven by Hideki Mutoh and Yuhki Nakayama. The SGT Class is always a fun one to follow as many of cars are very popular road cars, and the rest of the podium rounded out with GAINER and their #11 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 in second place, and in third place going to R&D Sport’s #61 Subaru BRZ GT300.
While many of the SGT teams had mechanical or technical issues that impacted their race, Team Mugen was able to largely avoid such pitfalls en route to a very impressive win.
The SGT podium reflects the current SUPER GT GT300 Team Rankings: TEAM MUGEN in first place (P3 overall), followed by GAINER (P4 overall), and in third R&D SPORT (P5 overall).
Next Asian Le Mans race is October 13 at the Zhuhai International Circuit in China.
