Weather:

The season comes to a finale in the land of the rising sun. Join us on this beautiful track, admire mount Fuji in the distance, enjoy one of the longest start/finish straights in the world of racing.

Our qualifying will see heavy cloud cover, with the race transitioning from heavy clouds to medium clouds.

We wish you all an epic finale to Season 9 and hope to see you soon for one of our shorter leagues before Season 10 kicks off.

Thank you all for an amazing S9, this place would be nothing without all of you :love:

Unfortunately I won't be making this last race of the season. I have a friend coming down from up North for a job interview during the day so we're going to meet up for some drinks.

Good luck to everyone racing tonight. Have a fun one and hopefully shall catch you on track again sometime!

Yeah thanks as well guys!
I had a massive great first lap... went from P17 to P9. Pace was good, but than in second lap @rillo7105 got to close to Andrex I guess, touched in the last corner and spun his car right in front of me. Car was very twitchy and hard to judge so close and could not avoid you anymore :-(.
So too much aero and susp damage for me, immediately pitted and that was race over (since all people that seem to have crappy first laps just give up and stop racing). At least I can held up my head high that I stick in the game and in the last minute was able to overtake for 2nd to last position.

Sorry for ruining your race too! It was the smallest taps on Andrex rear but my Horse didn’t like it all and decided to bang its head in the wall

P5! What a nice race for me to finish off the season. At one point during the first 15 minutes I thought P3 was possible but @Daniel Nesterowicz was keeping me busy for literally the whole 60 minutes. When we were battling @Adalexis managed to pick up his pace to create a ~10 second gap. Then during the second half of the race when I had a little bit of breathing space there was no realistic chance for me to close it down again. Good drive from both of you, didn´t think the Audi could do so well on this track.

At the end @fab.ICEMAN got me in what was a clean and enjoyable fight for P4, though I was disappointed it didn´t last for a bit longer. I had the better top end speed but couldn´t keep up with the Ferrari in the last sector where I had to be soooo careful to not overheat my tyres, which otherwise would´ve been instant death. Nevertheless my best result of the season (not counting Zolder) and I won´t complain about it. :)

Thanks to everyone for an incredible fun and competitive season once again. It flew past as quickly as last season although we had 4 more races. I think driving standards improved massively after the first 1-2 races and we´ve seen some very exciting but also clean racing. It was my absolute pleasure to be a part of it. Maybe worth mentioning that somehow, although I had a shocking first few races, I improved one place in the standings this season compared to last one from 11th into the top 10. Apparently I benefited from people who most likely lost motivation/ambition/fun to defend their title? *cough* @Vernux *cough*

Surely we can´t end a season without mentioning @King-kodiak and @FisiFan91 for their superior commentary performance every week. I know that especially KK - as the modest guy he is - isn´t particularly hunting for applaud but it has to be said, what you guys are doing is purely next level stuff. (By the way I have to apologize for my bad mic quality during the interviews last night, it is supposed to be a decent mic but had some issues with my USB ports lately. I`ll try to sort it out just in case I ever have the honour to speak to you on air again. :p)

Well done everyone, hope to see all of you on track soon!

Well I was surprised how well the cars were balanced here, maybe it was temperatures and the fact you had to manage tyres, which I didn't realise until I span :D! I span due to overheating on the rears I think, as I then became conscious about it and then the rear became more stable. I guess that's why you should practice haha :D! But I had a championship race before this and one after this race (My knee was dying by the end of the night) in GT Sport so a bit of a crazy night! Good fun battling through the field again and some interesting battles to :D! May the nearly default setup racing continue haha :), although it depends on GT Sport and what their official season calendar will look like, hopefully Wednesdays become free again!

Congratulations @Jardier and @Popsu on the top 2 positions, great job :). Great work from the commentators to as I've just watched the final commentary :D.

I do love the AOR GT3 league, really well run league, great driving from all so even if I'm not racing I'll still support where I can!

Cheers for the season guys - it was fun commentating on your battles, mistakes and everything in between!

Congrats again to @Jardier for the championship, and @Popsu for pushing him hard throughout the season - and also @Tidgney for being the only other driver with a race win!

Hope to see most of you back on track for the next one, and remember that the cods are hosting a shorter touring car season before S10 for those who might be interested in that :)
