LIVE STREAM: Nick Cassidy defending SUPER GT title

Nick Cassidy and Ryo Hirakawa go into the final race of the Autobacs SUPER GT Series as equal points leaders. 

 

The Red Bull KeePer TOM'S Racing duo sit tied on 67 points with 2009 Formula 1 World Championship title winner Jenson Button and this year's SUPER FORMULA champion Naoki Yamamoto.

 

Cassidy and HIrakawa are already the youngest GT500 championship winners, but could become the youngest back-to-back and two-time winners. 

 

Qualifying for the 250km final at Twin Ring Motegi saw Honda lead a top three lock out with Tomoki Nojiri and Takuya Izawa on pole position. Button and Yamamoto were second while Bertrand Baguette andKosuke Matsuura were third. 

 

Cassidy and Hirakawa were sixth quickest, but being behind Button and Yamamoto might not matter. The qualifying performance of Honda has been strong, but Lexus have had better race pace recently. Cassidy came from behind in the penultimate round in Autopolis to take their first win of the season.

Racing gets underway at 5:30pm.
