It was a good weekend for the R35 GT-R, when Nissan had the formula ‘win on sunday, sell on monday’ in their mind they sure are doing a good job.

April 13th, Okayama International Circuit, Okayama Prefecture, Japan – Sunday April 13th, the 2nd round of the SUPER GT season was held at Okayama International Circuit in Okayama prefecture. XANAVI NISMO GT-R(#23 Satoshi Motoyama / Benoit Treluyer), starting from pole position led the race from the start, accomplishing a pole-to-flag victory, to get their second consecutive win after the first round of the 2008 season. Third in qualifying, Calsonic IMPUL GT-R(#12 Tsugio Matsuda / Sebastien Philippe) finished 2nd, and the NISSAN GT-R took its second consecutive 1-2 finish.

The number #23 GT-R managed to to race the 82 laps in 2:01’56.605. The Xanavi Nissan is now leader in points with a total 46 out of two races, second place goes to Petronas Toms team with their SC430, they have 19 points out of two races.

JUN Super Lemon Impreza

JUN is famous for many things but especially for building fast cars. One of those fast cars is this Subaru Impreza. This car is still in development by JUN according to their site allthough hasn’t been seen near a track for a few years.

The car is running a JUN stroker that boosts its displacement from 2.0 litre to 2.5 litre. Other internal parts of the engine were  replaced by JUN items. For the turbo the chose for a Trust TD06 25G SH turbocharger. In it’s current form the car has 600ps at it’s disposal.

On the exterior of the car we see some one off aero parts, like the rear diffuser. The front bumper is a JUN item and the rear wing comes from SARD. The rims used are a set of 18″ Advan RG rims. On the suspension side of things they went for ZEAL suspension setup.

In 2002 it made a time of 0.58:239 on the Tsukuba circuit with Manubu Orido behind the wheels.
