In the second round of the Super Taikyu at Sugo the Audi RS 3 LMS cars took another 1-2 finish.

The BRP car of Yuya Ota, Takeshi Matsumoto and Takuro Shinohara took a second consecutive pole position and this time converted it into a win, making up for the disappointing season’s opener at Suzuka where it finished second after having led for three hours out of four.

It was a close competition with the sister car of Team DreamDrive shared by Takuya Shirasaka, Shozo Tagahara and Naoto Takeda that crossed the line less than seven seconds behind the winners. The podium was completed by the Honda Civic FK8 of Team Noah, driven by Toshiro Tsukada, Yoshikazu Sobu and Tatsuya Okahara.

The next round of the Super Taikyu will be the 24 Hours of Fuji Speedway, 31 May/2 June.
