How far will the Super GT season get as official testing begins

Saturday, March 14, 2020

Whilst many (too many) sporting events across many parts of the world are facing public access sanction or usually cancellation in the continuing wake of COVID-19 pandemic, the Japanese Super GT Series are continuing with their two day official test from the Okayama International Circuit.

Entered into the expected near thirty GT300 car grid will again be the D'Station Racing AMR Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3 but this season competing under the title sponsorship name of Pacific D'Station Racing with a new driver line up of team regular Tomonobu Fujii and AMR works driver Nicki Thiim.

With Thiim having been due to be at the WEC/IMSA double header test and race at Sebring in Florida this weekend and next (both events have now subsequently been cancelled), it has been left to Fujii to conduct the test on the car that now bears Michelin tyres for the first time.

Last seasons efforts with Fujii and Joao Paulo de Oliviera at the wheel of the then Yokohama shod car suffered from both accident damage and tyre related issues that made the team swap to the French brand having raced them in the Asian Le Mans Series.

With other Japanese series already suffering from a (so far) delayed start, we will have to wait and see what happens with their premier GT series which is still scheduled for the 11-12 April.
