The ZENT CERUMO TEAM Pilots Their SC430 to Victory in Round 6 of SUPER GT!

Round 6 of the Autobacks Super GT series was held on September 11th 2011 at the Fuji Speedway where the ZENT CERUMO SC430 team took first place in the Fuji GT 250KM Race. The ZENT CERUMO drivers (Tachikawa and Hirate) maneuvered a dramatic come from behind victory within the last three laps to take home the checkered flag.

From the start of the race the ZENT CERUMO SC430 held position in second place while closely chasing the lead car until late in the race. With the last lap quickly approaching, driver Tachikawa needed to put something together fast to take first place. The ZENT CERUMO driver made his move on the 53rd lap by passing the lead car on the outside of the Coca Cola corner and remained leader through the last lap ending the two year no-win dry-spell.
