Kiwi Jono Lester has qualified in 3rd for the opening Super Taikyu race at Sugo, Japan.

Lester felt a front row start and quite possibly pole position would have been achieved if not for catching slow traffic in a crucial section of track.

“Our track positioning was 99% on the money and my flyer was capable of ducking into the ’20s’. Unfortunately I caught slow traffic into the fast last turn and lost valuable time,” Lester said.

“Starting third means we are on the favourable line for the first corner. I will be starting the race in Car 28, so it’s crucial that I make a strong start and try to gain position early.”

The GTNET and KONDO Nissan GT-R pairing will share the front row.

Tomorrow’s morning forecast is for snow, and a wet afternoon to follow for the 3 hour endurance race.

“If this comes to fruition, it will be a race of brains and wits.”
