Tsukuba lap record broken

Driving a Turbosmart-equipped Nissan S15, “Under” Suzuki has broken the Tsukuba Race Track lap record held since 2007 by Nobuteru Taniguchi.

Well known in the Time Attack circles, Suzuki frequently appears at Tsukuba and has competed at the 2011 and 2012 World Time Attack Challenge. At last year’s WTAC Suzuki finished 4th outright, missing out on the podium by a few tenths of a second.

Suzuki’s record lap of 52:649 bettered Taniguchi’s time by almost a second.
