Super GT 2010 Round 4 at Sepang – A Brief Look into the Details

It’s Friday, and the pitlane came alive with a flurry of activities at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC). Crews and mechanics prepare their cars for the scrutineering ahead of tomorrow’s practice and qualifying session.

This is probably the coolest gun among the mechanics.

Pitstop practice. The tyre changes took only a few seconds, with great precision and consistency. Watching them do it again and again so consistently is amazing. But a single mistake can cost the team a chance for victory, so the pitstop is clearly a crucial part of the race.

Last year’s winner at Sepang in the GT300 Class. The I.M JIHAN CO.LTD•APPLE•Shiden is probably the most bizarre looking car amongst all the competing GT300 cars.

Ganbatte Orido San! Manabu “Max” Orido will be piloting the WedsSport IS350 alongside Tatsuya Kataoka in the GT300 Class.

The HSV-010 is very different from the GT-R and the SC430, as the bodywork features more sharp edges and less curvy, especially at the rear end.

The pitlane is quite busy as teams prepare for the weekend, with the media and photographers trying to catch the action.
