Motul Autech GT-R grabs back-to-back Super GT championship wins

Tsugio Matsuda and Ronnie Quintarelli secured their second GT500 championship in a row.

Yokohama, Japan - The final round of the 2015 Super GT Championship took place at Twin Ring Motegi last weekend and the #1 Motul Autech GT-R of Tsugio Matsuda and Ronnie Quintarelli accomplished an amazing comeback from 12th to finish in second place. Displacing the ranking leader, the #12 Calsonic IMPUL GT-R of Hironobu Yasuda and Joao Paolo de Oliveira, they secured their second GT500 championship in a row.

After the race, Nismo Team Principal Yutaka Suzuki said: “It was the never-give-up spirit of the whole team that allowed us to achieve this victory. This could be seen in the amazing effort from Ronnie as well as the fastest pit work in the race. You could say that our mechanics really created a stir. Tsugio’s out-lap was a fitting reward for all the team’s hard work. This was definitely a race fit for NISMO and it enables us to take home the championship. Thank you to all the fans who supported us throughout the year.”
