Super GT returns with D'Station Racing AMR off to Autopolis

Thursday, September 05, 2019

After the five hundred mile endurance round from Fuji International Speedway earlier in August this weekend sees the Japanese Super GT Series move down to the Autopolis Circuit on the southern island of Japan for round six and the Autobacs Super GT Autopolis 300Km.

D'station Racing AMR will be there with their Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3 for drivers Tomonobu Fuji and JP de Oliveira.

Last time out at Fuji, these regular drivers were joined by AMR factory driver Darren Turner and progress in that event for the team was good with a P3 finish in Free Practice before ultimately Qualifying in P10 for the extended race. A mixture of tyre degradation, race contact and untimely Safety car intervention eventually lead to the #7 car finishing P11 in their GT300 class.

For Autopolis, it is back to a two driver line up with Fujii and de Oliveira both keen to make up for lost ground after unattributed accident damage and general bad luck at previous rounds affected their position in the series despite their best of efforts.
