Lexus secured a surprise 1-2 finish in the Fuji 500 miles Super GT round after the race-leading Nissan ran into technical issues in the final hour.

Impul’s Daiki Sasaki struggled with tyre heating issues in the opening stages of the race and dropped as low as sixth, before staging a remarkable recovery drive and be up to third by the first round of pitstops.




The #36 TOM’S Lexus, second at the time, suffered a slow left-rear tyre change at this stage of the race, allowing Sasaki’s teammate Jann Mardenborough to move up a place and chase down the pole-sitter NISMO GT-R car.
Mardenborough and NISMO’s Tsugio Matsuda ran wheel-to-wheel for several laps, before the GT Academy graduate made a textbook pass at Turn 1 to assume the lead.




With the Bridgestones on the Impul offering high durability, both Mardenborough and Sasaki were able to build a mammoth 25-second lead to head to the final hour as favourites for the win.
However, on Lap 147, Sasaki began to slow down with an apparent lack of power and although Impul was able to fix the car relatively quick, the time lost dropped it outside the points.
The Michelin-shod NISMO GT-R also fell out of contention with tyre wear, forcing it to make an extra pitstop towards the latter stages of the race.
It was Lexus benefitting from Nissan's late troubles, with Kazuki Nakajima and Yuhi Sekiguchi inheriting the victory in the #36 TOM’S despite two slow pitstops.
Defending champions Nick Cassidy and Ryo Hirakawa finished 1.564s down the road, ensuring a 1-2 finish for not just Lexus but also for the TOM’S team.
