D'Station Racing Vantage GT8R crew to battle it out for class honours at finale of the Super Taikyu Series this weekend

Wednesday, November 23, 2022


Like we have said before, there are not too many races left in the calendar before we see out 2022 but one of those events is the final round of the Super Taikyu Series from Suzuka, Japan this weekend.

Again, featuring amongst the traditionally large multi-class grid for this final five-hour affair will be the two D’Station Racing Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT8R and GT3.

Stating the Vantage GT8R first is because the Max Orido, Kenji Hama and Jake Parsons driven #47 car is currently placed second within their ST-1 class Championship, just three and a half points behind the #2 Sintium Apple KTM X-Bow with this final round to go after having claimed the top step of the class podium at the previous two rounds.

Having had the ST-1 class sit out the last round (as each lower class is scheduled to do once during the season) left just the team’s #777 AMR Vantage GT3 of Satoshi Hoshino, Tomonobu Fujii and Tsubasa Kondo to fly the AMR flag at Okayama just over five weeks ago where that crew Qualified and finished third both overall and in the ST-X class. Having skipped the opening three rounds because of their international duties – this series for that crew is simply for race mileage and experience.

Should the #47 car scoop the overall class prize at the weekend, that will continue the teams fine form within their domestic series having won the ST-X class in 2021 as well as numerous GT3 and GT4 runners up in class finishes since taking on board the then latest AMR machinery.

For the international viewer, race coverage will be available via the series YouTube channel on Sunday.
