One of the most humbling parts of racing in Japan is the SUPER GT fans. Their passion, knowledge and generosity is unsurpassed in motorsport the world over. From banners, to caricatures, drawings, and all manner of gifts – Japan’s race fans make you feel right at home, even if you’re a tattooed ‘gaijin’ like me! There’s even Kids Only pit walks for the youngsters and their families. For them, I always bust out the panda hat and giveaway ‘mini-Jono’ stickers which always disappear within a few minutes!
