Fuji 24 beckons the D'Station Racing AMR team this weekend

Tuesday, May 18, 2021

It’s another busy week ahead for the Japanese D’Station Racing team as they prepare for the third round of the Super Taikyu Series at the weekend, with this round being the pivotable Super Tec 24-hour race from their home track at Fuji International Speedway.

Again, entering both their Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 and GT4 race cars, it has already been something of a productive year for the team in the series so far as they presently lead in the SP-X (GT3) class and stand in a competitive fifth spot in the SP-X (GT4) class after the previous rounds from Motegi and Sugo.

The teams #777 AMR Vantage GT3 car is again due to be driven by team boss Satoshi Hoshino, Tomonobu Fujii (both fresh form their recent experiences at the opening round of the World Endurance Championship at Spa) and Tsubasa Kondo. Kondo undertook the cars testing duties (alongside another GT3 debuting driver) for the 24Hr at Fuji whilst both Satoshi Hoshino and Fujii were racing their AMR Vantage GTE in Belgium of the first time.

Their #47 AMR Vantage GT4 will again be made up of a four-man team including Max Orido, Tatsuya Hoshino, Takuro Shinohara and Kenji Hama amongst a grid of ten SP-X cars.

The biggest issue for the weekend remains the weather with rain again being forecasted for the event.
