July 23, 2014 - On July 19-20, Sportsland SUGO in Miyagi Prefecture hosted the fourth round of this year’s SUPER GT. The No.1 ZENT CERUMO RC F, driven by Yuji Tachikawa and Kohei Hirate, started in 11th position but comfortably outpaced the field for its first victory of the season. Daisuke Ito and Andrea Caldarelli, in the No.37 KeePer TOM’s RC F, placed second, ensuring that LEXUS RC F scored its first one-two finish since the opening race of the season. The race took place in highly variable weather conditions, and there were frequent changes of position. However, fourth, fifth, and sixth positions were also won by LEXUS RC F race cars, meaning that LEXUS RC F captured five of the top six places.
