D'Station Racings Aston Martin Vantage GT8R flies solo in this weekends Fuji 24

Sunday, May 21, 2023


As you may have already heard, the second round of the Japanese Super Taikyu Series embarks upon its biggest round of their season this weekend as the multi-class grid again battles a 24-hour race around the Fuji International Speedway circuit.

Again with two Aston Martin Racing platforms listed within the series full season entry, this round will also only see the D’Station Racing team’s AMR Vantage GT8R compete as their AMR Vantage GT3 crew remain otherwise pre-occupied with their World Endurance Championship commitments over in Europe and particularly their preparation to the 24 Hours of Le Mans and its Official test day weekend including le Pesage.

However, and with their WEC ambitions firmly in mind the team has elected to send their latest Silver ranked driver in Casper Stevenson to Japan to take part within the Fuji 24 event with the #47 cars more established driver line up.

Limited to racing knowledge both within Europe and not of a 24-hour duration, this race will give Stevenson critical knowledge and experience both for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in just over two weeks’ time but also for the WEC round at Fuji later in the year.

Stevenson will join drivers Max Orido, Kenji Hama, Katsuya Hoshino, Tsubasa Kondo and Jake Parsons within the ST-1 class.
