Naming[edit]

For now Super GT redirects here. But as that is now its official name should this article not redirect there? Sparky132 23:07, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

Champions[edit]

Table of Champions needs some scrubbing up, it's hard to read correctly. A bullet for each year, and the categories subheaded underneath that? Or 2 seperate tables?Kurohone 21:50, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

JGTCC[edit]

I created the SuperGT page as a separate entry to the JGTCC page in the hope that the original JGTC/SuperGT author/s would 'clean up' that page and turn it into a separate page specifically for the JGTCC: I think there are enough differences between SuperGT and the old JGTCC series to warrant separate pages?? I just didnt feel it was my place to go and edit the JGTC page to remove the references to SuperGT...at the moment it seems the JGTCC page talks about SuperGT and implies they are one in the same? Timmo1

SuperGT is a direct renaming of JGTC, they're not two seperate series. It was just a marketing move to try to encourage expansion to China, Australia and the US (which so far has failed dismally)Kurohone 05:46, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

GT300[edit]

The text in the GT300 subsection needs to be changed also? Specifically, the text that says engine substitutions arent allowed: Im pretty sure the Toyota MRS/MR2 uses a V6 whereas te road going version is a inline 4 Timmo1

Exactly. The MR2 uses a V6, although last year it used a 2.0 Turbo, like the Celica (neither have Turbos in the road version, and the Celica switched from FWD to RWD). In addition, a Porsche Boxster races with the 996 GT3's engine, a Ford GT chassis was fitted with a one-off 3.5 V6 engine, and there are Vemacs with Zytek and Mugen LMP engines (the road Vemacs use Honda engines). --Pc13 00:23, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
Nissan also used Turbo V6s in the last year of the Skyline instead of a turbo I6, and the Supras used turbo I4s for a while instead of the stock turbo I6s The359 04:21, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
We were talking about GT300, man. :-) --Pc13 08:25, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

Adding Pictures[edit]

I just noticed there are quite a few pictures in Wikimedia commons that could be place throughout this article if someone wanted to do that.Cstubbies (talk) 11:11, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

done, didn't noticed there was a request for this. :) Cliché Online (talk) 12:35, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

1993 year?[edit]

wtf? the championship was created one year later and this 1993 record doesn't appear in the jap article. it should be deleted. Cliché Online (talk) 12:35, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

  • Support. It does indeed appear to be vandalism, and part of a pattern of the same. Andrewa (talk) 13:52, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
  • Support. Restore, please. It is wide-scale vandalism and it hasn't been restricted just to this kind of page move; false and misleading pieces of information have been inserted by that user in a few other motorsport-related pages, e.g. Peugeot 908 HDi FAP and Shinji Nakano. 188.24.90.192 (talk) 17:33, 11 October 2010 (UTC) (I wish to remain anonymous)
