6 rounds of the 5th Test Season was held from December 3rd to the 9th. The opening round was a Gr.4 race on Interlagos, where the last season’s champion JUN-_-JEEEEN, together with other Japanese drivers including blackbeauty-79 and Brond placed high on the rankings, with Australian Nik_Makozi following close behind in 4th.

Round 2 was a one-make race in the Porsche 911 GT3 RS staged on Lake Maggiore. In this race PVR103_612 of Japan scored the highest points, followed by JUN-_-JEEEEN in 2nd, and Nik_Makozi of Australia in 3rd.

Then there was a turn of events in Round 3. In the Gr. 4 Huracan one-make race on the Dragon Trail, Australia’s Nik_Makozi executes a perfect pole-to-win scoring 1661 points, shooting him up to the top of the rankings. At the end of 3 rounds, in 1st place of the point ranking was Australia with Nik_Makozi, Japan in 2nd with JUN-_-JEEEEN, and Japan also in 3rd with PVR103_612 at the wheel.
