The final round of the 2011 SUPER GT season took place at Twin Ring Motegi (Motegi town, Tochigi prefecture) on Sunday, October 16th in the MOTEGI GT 250km RACE, with a race day audience of over 26,000. Starting from fifth on the grid, the #23 MOTUL AUTECH GT-R (Satoshi Motoyama/Benoit Treluyer) was victorious. Points' leaders the #46 S Road MOLA GT-R (Masataka Yanagida/Ronnie Quintarelli) began their race from pole position before settling into 2nd place on the way to becoming series' champions for the first time. The #23 GT-R, winners also in the previous round at Autopolis, took their third victory of the year. It was another 1-2 finish for NISSAN, and the result secured the top two positions in the series' rankings for MOLA and NISMO, respectively. From the eight rounds contested this season, NISSAN GT-R entries demonstrated their dominance by winning a total of five times.

Yay! I knew already after the penultimate round it would come down to only two GT-R teams for the titles but still it's awesome to have the GT-R be series champion again!


Also cool to have a client team snag the title for the first time - and to do it against the factory team and in their first year in the GT500 class on Michelin's instead of the usually superior Bridgestones, that's seriously impressive! Congrats Team Mola!
