Thirty teams were entered into the GT300 class in the 2017 Autobacs Super GT Series, a field boasting unprecedented star power and competition for the second-tier category. At the start of the season, the 2017 GT300 class made a case for being the strongest of all time.
On the eve of the final race of the season, it certainly has lived up to the billing. Amidst a collection of all-pro and pro-am teams, there have been six different winning teams through seven races. Thirteen different teams have put their drivers on the podium. And finally, out of this amazing thirty-car field, we are down to four teams who can still win the GT300 championship, at the 2017 Motegi GT Grand Final at Twin Ring Motegi.
And for the top two challengers, separated by just nine points, it really is a case where one team can fulfill their promise, while another team can cement themselves as immortal legends of the sport.
