Despite another podium - the gap grows within the ST-1 Class of Super Taikyu Series

Sunday, July 09, 2023


Whilst the potential for racing success for the D’Station Racing team got smashed to pieces by a passing Hypercar within the latest round of the World Endurance Championship at Monza, there was more to cheer for from their Super Taikyu Series entry at the latest round of that series from Sugo earlier today.

Racing their Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT8R within the third round of the Japanese domestic series, the #47 car crewed by Max Orido, Jake Parsons, Kenji Hama and Tatsuya Hoshino again had to battle the season dominant KS Frontier KTM X Bow within their ST-1 class for today’s three-hour race.

Finishing the race eighth overall and again second overall in class, the team can now look forward to something new as the car is being entered into the Okayama round of the GT World Challenge Asia Series (Japan Cup) with an otherwise unstated two driver line up in August.

The next round of the Super Taikyu Series will be from Autopolis at the end of July but with the gap ever increasing to the #2 crew ahead, their best bet for championship status will be via misfortunate on track of their KTM rivals.
