Two Aston Martin Vantage GT8Rs to compete in both Japan and New Zealand this weekend

Thursday, March 16, 2023


Two Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4’s complete the AMR runner orders within significant national events around the world these weekend as the Super Taikyu Series gets underway in Japan and the New Zealand GT Series holds its penultimate round of the year over there.

In Japan, the D’Station Racing team again compete with their Vantage GT8R as the opening round at Suzuka with driver Takuya Hoshino, Atsushi Takashi and Jake Parsons take the wheel of the #47 car – again in isolation from their #777 Vantage GT3 crew who are otherwise preoccupied at the opening round of the World Endurance Championship in Sebring.

Over in New Zealand, the GT Series has moved across to the Taupo International Motorsport Park for their penultimate triple header round of the season having raced at both Hampton Downs and Highlands Park.

For this round we have again gone back down to just one Aston Martin Vantage GT8R of Stephen Harrison as Joel Giddy has apparently swapped to a Mercedes AMG GT4 platform already for that event. Harrison presently lies sixth within the GT4 class, still within reach of the class leaders in front.
