For this week’s Throwback Tuesday Thursday, we take a look back at the last five runnings of the Super GT in Kyushu 300km at Autopolis. With the 2016 race cancelled due to the damage caused by the Kumamoto earthquakes of April 2016, we are instead looking at the 2011 through 2015 races.

5 Most Dramatic Super GT Final Races

This weekend’s Motegi GT Grand Final will be a historic event for the Autobacs Super GT Series. For the first time in history, a championship will be decided in a two-race final meeting of the season.

Super GT championship battles are very closely contested throughout the season, thanks in no small part to factors like Success Ballast and Balance of Performance, the complexion of a championship can turn dramatically in an instant.
