イメージ画像Racing TEAM HERO’S Comment
``The team will be participating in the race this year with new wheels from Work Co., Ltd. We will do our best to prove our superiority in performance through race results. ”

The first match was held at Sportsland SUGO from Saturday, May 11th to Sunday, May 12th, 2024.

イメージ画像◆Occupied driving
For driver Naomasa Kishimoto, it was his first time at SUGO, and he was unfamiliar with the boxcar race, so there were many things he had to adjust to, such as navigating the course, changes in the road surface, machine characteristics, and how to use tires, but the driving time was limited. I was able to concentrate on running with a theme.
In the occupied run, he was in 6th place, 0.6 seconds behind the leader.
In terms of technology, we have the machines under control, so there is still room for improvement.

イメージ画像``M.C.O RACING is literally a lightweight wheel specialized for sports driving. This wheel has won numerous victories in rallies and dirt trials, and is a perfect match for the GR86/BRZ. ”

``A penalty that frequently occurs in GR86/BRZ one-make is ``time loss due to four wheels coming off''. Fearing this penalty, I took a somewhat restrained approach in qualifying. ”
The mental set for qualifying and small technical improvements are the key points for future growth.

”In the final race, we got a good start and jumped up to 4th place. We were able to close the distance between the front and rear in the battle with other cars, which is important in a one-make race final, and we were able to execute tire management orders well, and achieved the fastest lap of the final race. We were able to get 3rd place on the podium! ”
