Two D'Station Racing Aston Martins for this weekend GT World Challenge Asia visit to Okayama

Monday, August 14, 2023


This weekend is also a double header weekend as far as the SRO organisation is concerned as both their GT World Challenge America and Asia Series do battle at both Road America and the Okayama circuit in Japan.

Unlike Road America where it is solely The Racers Group flying the Aston Martin Racing flag during their proceedings, over in Japan we will see the return of the #47 D’Station Racing AMR Vantage GT3 full season entry of Satoshi Hoshino and Tomonobu Fujii but also the team’s #48 AMR Vantage GT8R for its first entry into the ‘Japan Cup’ for drivers Tatsuya Hoshino and Kenji Hama.

Whilst the #47 Vantage GT3 has contested all rounds except for the season opener at the Chang International in Thailand, their Vantage GT8R crew is more used to racing within the country’s domestic and multi-classed Super Taikyu Series with an up to four driver line up.

With an expanded grid of seven GT4 based cars, this fifth round of the season sees the overall entry list expand to thirty-eight cars for the two one-hour races of the weekend.

As far as the overall GTWCAsia Championship is concerned, the #47 crew have only scored in three races so far which places them down in P18 overall but within their own Japan Cup GT3 Drivers Championship stakes, they presently sit second within the table and just seventeen points behind the leaders as that series concludes this weekend.

There is still much to race for.
