Urgent SPA Support! Eau Rouge Revenge Course Info!


 

Goodsmile Racing & TeamUKYO are currently racing in the Belguim Total 24 Hours of Spa Francorchamps endurance race; however, during the qualifying session that was held on July 28 (Japan time), in the Spa track’s notorious “Eau Rouge” high speed corner the driver suddenly lost control of the car, resulting in a serious crash.  Fortunately driver Kamui Kobayashi who was in the car at the time was not injured, but the damage to the car is quite serious and it’s impossible to have it in working condition before the final race.

With the cooperation of AMG, we’ve been able to make urgent arrangements for another car.  And though it’s generally against regulations to change out the chassis or engine, race organizer SRO has been quite permissive and granted us a special exemption.

We’re very sorry to cause concern, but it seems that we’ll still be able to race in the finals – so at least you can rest assured on that point!

However, in dealing with this accident costs have surpassed our initial calculations by a long shot.  Though we’re very sorry to do this to everyone, we’ve opened up a brand new SPA Course – the Urgent SPA Support! Eau Rouge Revenge Course (10000JPY) – to ask for the support of all our Personal Sponsors.  The course will be open until Aug. 10.

In accordance with everyone’s support, and to return to Japan with good news, everyone here on the team will do everything they can to get the car past the finish line.  A big thank you to everyone who chips in to their generous donations!

You can enroll for this new course below.  (Japan only.)
