Did the Porsche win?

I just saw a few minutes of the Japanese Touring car championships on Speed Channel, there were several classes racing at once. Primarily Supra's, Skylines and Honda's, funny thing was in the last group of competitors there was one lonely Porsche!! Within the first half lap the Porsche caught and quite handily passed the 350Z and Skyline in its class and appeared to be advancing forward to find another victim!!! Did anyone see this? How did he do in the end? and what the hell was a Porsche doing in the Japanese Touring car championships???!!!

Yes the Porsche won the GT300 class. The Mosler spun out and the 350 Z came in second. The 2 top running supra's dropped due to a left front tire failure and the third spun. The two Skylines won GT500.
