The 1000km race was held as part of the Super GT championship for the final time. For next year, a 10-hour race for GT3/GT300 spec cars will be run for the first time. Prior to the weekend, Quintarelli and Matsuda were only three points off the championship lead and were laden with an 82kg handicap weight (48kg actual ballast + second stage fuel restrictor).
The team's single lap pace suffered with Quintarelli only able to qualify 12th fastest. At the green flag, however, the Italian gained one position on the opening lap and gradually made his way inside the top 10.
