Just like any other endurance motorsport. It's a bunch of guys doing laps in fixed up cars for a long time.

Here is a short video of it:

Looks to be stock cars from Japan racing around any given track with haripins, horseshoe and various other kinds of turns. Almost like a "Japanese NASCAR".

Re: 1st thread!

Its more closely related to the US Speed World Challenge, not NASCAR. For an even better analogy, Super Takiyu is not as extreme as Super GT. You can compare Super GT to Le Mans. Igor will be racing in the Super Takiyu series this coming year and probably the reasoning to why the forum was added.

Re: 1st thread!

Hmm, never heard of this kinda thing really... To be honest, I'm not real interested either...
I can't even pernounce the damn name of the sport, so why bother...
