Kobayashi on pole at Okayama
Takashi Kobayashi and Tomoki Nojiri brought their Arta NSX-GT on pole at the Okayama circuit, for the first round of 2017 Autobacs Super GT, after a twice red-flagged qualifying. The Japanese duo finished ahead of Wako’s Lexus LC of Andrea Caldarelli and Kazuya Oshima. Third time for the sister car of KeePer Tom’s team, driven by Ryo Hirakawa and Nick Cassidy.
In the GT300 class, last year’s Okayama round winners Haruki Kurosawa and Naoya Gamou set the quickest time with their Mercedes AMG GT3.
