SUPER GT announces 43-car entry list for 2022

SUPER GT has released a 43-car entry list for the 2022 season, comprising 15 cars in GT500 and 28 in GT300.

GT500 start action

The entry list marks a reduction of one car compared to the 2021 season, with two GT300 teams - Hitotsuyama Racing and Toyota Team Thailand - withdrawing and only one new squad, Shade Racing, joining the series.

However, the top GT500 class remains stable at 15 cars, split between six Toyota GR Supras, five Type S-based Honda NSX-GTs and a quartet of Nissan Zs.

There are no surprises on the driver front, with all three manufacturers having all revealed their line-ups some time ago.

For the second year running, only four international drivers will compete in the top class, with Ronnie Quintarelli, Bertrand Baguette and Sacha Fenestraz joined in the top division by Giuliano Alesi.

Bridgestone is once again the best-represented tyre firm with nine of the 15 GT500 cars using its products. Rivals Michelin, Yokohama and Dunlop will again supply two cars each, with no changes from 2021.

The GT300 class entry list confirms the presence on the grid of number of teams that had yet to make official announcements.

 

Both Team LeMans with Motoyama Racing (Audi R8 LMS) and Saitama Toyopet Green Brave (Toyota GR Supra) will continue with their respective car and driver line-ups of 2021, leaving only Team Mach and Pacific CarGuy Racing to formally announce their plans for 2022.

Audi has therefore been confirmed to keep a presence in the GT300 class following the withdrawal of long-time customer squad Hitotsuyama.

Shade Racing has also confirmed that its new Toyota GR86 GT will run with the number 20 this year.

The GR86 is one of two new GT300 models for 2022 alongside the BMW M4 GT3, which will be run by Team Studie.

Porsche and Lotus have both dropped off the grid following Team Tsuchiya and Inging both switching to new Toyota models for 2022, the GR Supra and GR86 respectively. Ferrari likewise was not named on the entry list, but is expected to remain on the grid with Pacific CarGuy.

On the tyre front, Yokohama remains the dominant supplier in GT300 with 15 entries. Dunlop has expanded to seven cars, having gained Shade Racing and Drago Corse, while Bridgestone will supply five cars and Michelin just one, the Studie BMW, after a year's absence from the class.
