Dome Racing Honda wins the Autopolis 5 hours

15 July 2018

The DOME Racing Honda Civic #98 won the TCR class in the Autopolis 5-hour race, fourth round of the Super Taikyu series.
This was the first victory of the season for the #98 car shared by Taiyo Iida, Hiroki Kato and Kazuho Takahashi that had set pole position and managed to beat the Modulo Racing sister car #97 of Tadao Uematsu, Shinji Nakano, Hiroki Otsu and Takashi Kobayashi.
In the early stages of the race, the winning Honda faced a strong competition from the #45 Team DreamDrive Audi RS3 LMS driven by Naoto Takeda, Takuya Shirasaka and Shozo Tagahara, but the German car lost contact after going off onto the gravel trap and eventually finished sixth.
The podium was completed by the Racingline Performance Volkswagen Golf GTI of Philippe Devesa and Shogo Mitsuyama.
In the standings, the #98 Honda kept the lead with 110.5 points, while the #97 moved up to second with 76, 13 clear of the #45 Audi.
The series will resume at Motegi on September 22/23.
