D'Station Racings Vantage GT8R crew back in action this weekend in Super Taikyu Series from Motegi

Thursday, August 31, 2023


Five rounds in so far and the Japanese based Super Taikyu Series is also back in action this weekend as their large multi-classed grid compete in what will be a five-hour race around the Twin Ring Motegi Circuit just to the north of Tokyo.

Fashionably absent again sees the D’Station Racing Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 crew of Satoshi Hoshino, Tomonobu Fujii and Tsubasa Kondo again not take part as they have their own World Endurance Championship plans to consider ahead of the Fuji round just next weekend, but we do see the return of the team’s AMR Vantage GT8R.

Having seen the team and some of the crew race with podium winning success at the last round of the GT World Challenge Asia Japan Cup Series from Okayama a couple of weeks ago, the ST1 class was forced to miss the last round of the series due to paddock size but the #47 Tatsuya Hoshino, Max Orido, Kenji Hama and Jake Parsons driven car will be back this time around with one simple game plan.

Having been the bridesmaid in class to the all-conquering #2 KS Frontier KTM so far this season, the AMR crew sit just 9.5 points behind the KTM crew within this two-horse class with just three rounds including this one to go!
