  • ・The schedule was affected by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
    The Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, which occurred before the start of the season, affected the schedule significantly, and the order of the 1st 2 races were swapped.
  • ・Start of the no tire change strategy!
    Taniguchi’s special move of not changing the tires during a pit stop to reduce time loss was implemented for the first time with this team. The tires did not have much wear because they were heavy-weight.

  • ・Tenacity to win! A slightly wet, slick theater
    The Suzuka 700km race took place in heavy rain. The rain stopped during the latter half, and the surface began to dry in the width of just 1 tire. Taniguchi gambled by changing to slick tires and aiming for this sliver of dry road. As a result, the standings dropped to 15th before climbing back up to 5th by the end of the race.
  • ・The meaning of Taniguchi’s tears.
    After the race, Taniguchi cried in front of the briefing session for individual sponsors as he apologized for finishing 5th. This is because Taniguchi was aiming to finish much higher than 5th at this race.

  • ・We lost top position due to our struggles with performance adjustments.
    Performance adjustments were added after the victory at Fuji, and the automobile lost its overwhelming speed. Possibly for this reason, we finished 9th and gave up top spot to our rival.
  • ・We remain in the championship battle.
    At the end of Round 7, only the number 11 car of JIMGAINER Ferrari and Miku Z4 remained as the 2 championship contenders. We enter the final race with a 5 point gap.

  • ・A car painted with an anime character vs an Italian car for the final race.
    The final race pitted Miku Z4, a car painted with an anime character, against the Ferrari 458, an Italian car. Although there was a 5 point gap, Miku Z4 would become the champion with a win. As the Ferrari would be the champion otherwise, the implications of this race were very easy to understand.
  • ・The 3rd victory from pole position.
    The winning pattern for Miku Z4 was in place, as we won pole position in qualifying before finishing 1st for the 3rd time. All the fans in the cheering section gave a standing ovation!
  • ・Miku is the fastest songstress! Finally we are the GT champions!
    Although it wasn’t easy to make up a 5 point gap, the entire team fought hard to become champions! This is the moment that the Hatsune Miku GT project became a champion in name and reality. Our series ranking was 1st!
