They moved up to 43rd place, but are now back to 50th, on the 17th lap, and are down in their class, too.

Lucas Ordonez is being interviewed.
He was driving when the tire blew.
The car was also running out of gas, so they have changed strategy to do 7 laps between fill ups, instead of 8.
There are two GT-Rs and they want to have both cars finish the race.

There are only two SP 8T cars, the two NISSAN GT-Rs. The other one is now down to 80th place, so something must have happened to the white #23 car.
The Team GT Academy car is the black #123.

The base car is a 2012 Nissan GT-R Club Track Edition (the circuit-racing grade model of the GT-R) with the necessary modifications made to participate in the race. The interior has been removed, a roll cage has been installed and the fuel tank has been moved, but the basics are the same as the commercially available Club Track Edition. The engine is left stock and produces 550+ps, with 260/710R20 Dunlop slick tires in the front and 290/710R20 in the rear. The stock Aurora Flare Blue Opal color is the base color, with a white racing stripe running down the middle. The team's car number is 123, and in this 24 hour race there is another GT-R; car number 23 that was developed together with the same specs, run by the "World of GT-R team".
