Welcome to Super GT World!

Today, Super GT World is launched.

The goal for this site is to become a one-stop source for news, reports, commentary, and analysis of the Autobacs Super GT Series.

Founded in 1993, Super GT (formerly the All-Japan Grand Touring Car Championship) is Japan’s top level of multi-class sports car racing.

Though many of the series’ most popular cars are world-famous due to their inclusion in video games such as Gran Turismo, and many current and former drivers have gone on to star in Formula 1, IndyCar, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans among other categories, there are very few English-language sites that cover Super GT on a consistent basis. Super GT World aims to fill this void.

Super GT World will feature news, race and qualifying reports, commentary, analysis, features, and also updates on what current Super GT drivers are doing elsewhere in the world of motorsport.

Truth be told, I’m not sure how long this site will run – nothing is forever in motorsport, after all – but I will do my best to make sure its a memorable run.

  1. Hi RJ, this is a great addition to the world of motor sports media and I’m happy to see it appear. It’s the most technically interesting series out there short of the WEC, but it’s so difficult to follow the series from the US when you don’t speak Japanese.

    Wishing you the best of luck with this site. If I may offer one suggestion, and this may be in process already, please create a Twitter feed or similar social media stream for the site. It’s so hard to keep up with interesting sites like yours given all the information that hammers us every day, and announcements of new content will help break through the clutter.
