Although I have known Super GT since 2001, this is the first time I have ever been to a Super GT race in Sepang International Circuit (SIC) as part of the media on 9th and 10th June 2012 at the Super GT International Series Malaysia, Round 3.
The Super GT International Series Malaysia Round 3 is the ONLY race outside of Japan in the Super GT Series.
Being in the media room brought us ‘closer’ to the race because we got to monitor the whole race and felt the suspense in the pits, as compared to watching from TV or grandstands.
The Japan Super GT Race has been featured in Malaysia since year 2000 where it was only a special exhibition race back then, only in recent years the Super GT Sepang International Circuit, Malaysia, was included as part of the whole GT tournament, and usually it’s at Round 3.
Like any other motor sports, Super GT is often associated with its super cars and also the hot Japanese team ambassadors, whom we called them GT Queens.
