We took measures to improve reliability this year since we stayed in the pit for a long time last year. However, although the cause was different this year, we had to stop the car again this year, and I am frustrated that more couldn't be done. However, Nürburgring is always a tough race for us. Again this year, Nürburgring taught us another tough lesson.
GR Supra Chief MechanicHideyuki Tanaka
For the GR Supra, the longest race we had experienced was just four hours, and I am happy that we completed 24 hours for the first time. In the end, I felt that I had done everything I could and my eyes were suddenly filled with tears. I am full of gratitude so want to thank everyone.
