Super Taikyu Fuji - Qualifying

We had qualifying for the round 4 of Super Taikyu at Fuji Speedway today.

Best result so far this season - 3rd!
On pole is an RX7, which posted a ridiculous 1:51.1 lap time by running an incredible amount of boost, breaking the previous lap record for our class by one tenth. In 2nd place is a Z, with both drivers posting a 1:52.6xx lap time.
Maejima-san got a 1:53.3 despite a huge oversteer slide in the 100R corner and some other minor mistakes. I was completely ready to best his time but ended up posting 1:54.0. Unfortunately, I ran into traffic from the same class out of nowhere (cars came out of pits in front of me) and the only clear lap I had was the first hot lap when the stickers had not yet gotten enough heat into them so I got a huge oversteer slide in the 100R and then some understeer beyond B-corner on the back side. However, the entire team is really happy with the result. After looking over the in-car video, which I hope to post here in the future, and the data-log, we should be able to comfortably run a 1:54.xx pace the entire race tomorrow. If we get a little bit of luck on our side, a podium finish is absolutely feasible, maybe even that middle spot.

今日はS耐久の第4戦レースの予選が富士で行われました。結果は今までのベスト:クラス3位。前島さんも僕も予選のトップラップは結構大きい失敗がありましたが、このスタート順位では明日は本当に期待できます。前島さんはスタートドライバーで僕は後半、チェッカーまで走ります。このレースは確実に表彰台に乗るつもりです。
