The 2016 silly season for Super GT is well underway! Starting with the news that the Toyota Prius is back, and better than ever*, for 2016! The new look for Toyota's silhouette-frame, hybrid challenger was revealed in this month's Auto Sport (not that one) magazine. Goodsmile Racing with Team UKYO have one of the most popular entries in either of SGT's categories. Today, they also announced that Hatsune Miku will now grace her presence on a new Mercedes AMG GT3, while retaining former champion co-drivers Nobuteru Taniguchi and Tatsuya Kataoka. This month's Auto Sport has some speculation on the 2016 season: With the recent closure of Nissan's LMP1 team, there's a bottleneck of talent within the manufacturer's driver roster. Katsumasa Chiyo and Jann Mardenborough have been linked to a step up to GT500. Yuhi Sekiguchi, a Nissan talent "on loan" to Lexus, may be woven back into the fold as well. New Zealand's Nick Cassidy, his F3 rival Kenta Yamashita, and another young Toyota works driver Yuichi Nakayama could factor into the equation at Lexus in what could be a chaotic off-season. Honda's lineup seems, in contrast, fairly stable: Three of the five teams are either confirmed or will likely confirm they'll retain their 2015 lineups. Good news for fans of SUPER GT SUPERSTAR OLIVER TURVEY! In addition to the AMG GT3, the new Audi R8 LMS, Lamborghini Huracan GT3, BMW M6 GT3, and Porsche 911 GT3-R could see their Japanese debuts in the GT300 class, possibly even the Ferrari 488 GT3. The craziest rumor is that Autobacs Racing Team Aguri could adopt one of the BMWs after retiring the Honda CR-Z after 2015. (Huge thanks to @geinou on Twitter for the translations.) We'll know more closer to January/February when Honda, Toyota, and Nissan have their start-of-the-year press conferences.
