New challenging for driver and teams
Rd.5 is Autopolis international circuit. 2015 season turns 2nd half.
・Can refuel another side
Autopolis is there only circuit left side pitlane. Last year, SF14 and NRE unit didn’t correspond to the oil supply from the left side. Because not only the fuel supply port, since also a complicated process such as a wire.
But this year, JRP and team ready left side oil supply after some testing.
So pit clew must adapt.
・Who stop Ishiura steady advance?
Hiroaki Ishiura (P.MU/Cermo・Inging) wins Rd.4 Motegi. Ishiura is only driver reached the season second victory. And lead 7 points from 2nd position J.P.Oliveira (Lenovo Team IMPUL).
Strong candidate for this race is Andre Lotterer (Petronas Team TOM’s). Lotterer is most wins at Autopolis in active driver.
And interesting date. Japanese driver good performance at Autopolis.
Takashi Kogure (Drago Corse) wins 2009, Kazuki Nakajima (Petronas Team TOM’s) and Koudai Tsukakoshi (Real Racing) score first career wins at this circuit.
In addition, Kamui Kobayashi (KYGNUS SUNOCO Team LeMans) first race at Autopolis this time. But test run at June with Yokohama tyre testing.
・Interesting helmet livery
Koudai Tsukakoshi bringing new helmet livery.
It is interesting one. Tsukakoshi put kart circuit logo on overall.
Why Tsukakoshi put circuit logo? Because this is a circuit which he owns since 2014.
