<pre> Japanese GT Championship Fuji Round Two 3 & 4 May 2001 </pre>
Tanaka made the start for the no.22 Nismo Skyline, initially holding sixth position before pushing a little to hard and losing some grip, which dropped him to seventh position which he held for his first stint.
Krumm took over the no. 22 Skyline with a new set of tyres and immediately set about making up some places, which he did.
Michael completed a double stint to bring the Skyline home in third place, having made places on the track, specifically making two excellent re starts from safety car periods and gaining places on both occasions.
" We had a very good race today, Tanaka did I very good first stint and gave me the car in very good condition. Our pit stops where very good and we made time up in these and also I made some places on the re starts. We are second in the championship now so I am quite pleased with our position." Michael commented from Fuji.
