Vids in Japanese but "proud of BOXER" sticker is nice. Talk about an underdog look at what BRZ is competing against. Im not concerned as we all know what stickers can do for HP & the Porsches don't have BOXER stickers. Can't wait to see a BOXER sticker on a Scion. http://www.dpccars.com/car-videos-12...-BRZ-GT300.htm

Here's the race report in English:

SUBARU BRZ GT300 forced to retire in debut race

Round 1 - 31 March to 1 April 2012 at Okayama International Circuit

The opening round of the 2012 SUPER GT took place Sunday 1 April at Okayama International Circuit, with the SUBARU BRZ GT300 appearing in its debut race. The car fared well in its efforts to get a high position until the mid point, but it had to make an emergency pit stop because of a drive-train problem that couldn't be fixed and which subsequently forced the team to retire from the race.
Despite an unusually low temperature of 10C for April, the season opener of SUPER GT was packed with spectators. Tetsuya Yamano started the final race in the BRZ GT300 from 8th on the grid as the team had advanced to Q3 in the knockout qualifying the previous day. Yamano commented before the final race, “We have changed the setting of the car since yesterday's qualifying, and the car's behaviour is now slightly more stable. We are still looking for the right setting and it's not perfect yet, but we are trying what we can do at the moment to collect data. In the race, it might be better to get back to the pit earlier so that we can drive with more space around us and avoid congestion”. As the race started, Yamano slipped a position from 8th at one point, but still recorded the similar lap times to other competitors. He then climbed back to 8th and with a deviation from the plan, continued on until Lap 43 before handing the car to Kouta Sasaki. Right after the changeover however, Sasaki felt that something was wrong in the rear and made an emergency pit stop. It was judged impossible to continue in the race due to a differential problem and so unfortunately BRZ's debut race ended in an early retirement.

Thanks for ENGLISH link. Rear diff failure or a loose bushing, bolt? BRZ has best chance in Motegi but we'll see. If the Power of BOXER can finish Fuji & place well I'm gonna be hooked on Super GT.
