D'Station Racing see out the Super Taikyu Series on something of a high

Monday, November 13, 2023


D’Station Racing saw out their domestic Super Taikyu Series commitments on something of a high as one car finished with a class win and the other with the fastest lap and a finish to be proud of.

Having already lost the ST-1 class to the #2 KS Frontier KTM crew at the penultimate round a couple of weeks ago, it was all change within the Fuji Speedway based team as they raced out the final four-hour event at their home track.

Within the team’s season long ST-1 class Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT8R saw just Max Orido see out the final round alongside his old teammate of Nobutera Taniguchi where the duo claimed class pole position for the first time this season. Having been always the bridesmaid to the #2 KTM, Fuji proved to be fortunate for the #47 car as, despite their driver grade time penalty being served, the duo were still able to come out to claim the cars maiden win of the season.

Whilst that did not change the Class Championship result, it did at least allow all to have a smile on their faces as the team’s #777 Vantage GT3 also came home with the usual GT8R crew aboard for the first time.

Running for the first time this season with Tatsuya Hoshino, Tsubasa Kondo, Kenji Hama and Jake Parsons, saw the inexperience of the Vantage GT3 be compensated with their knowledge of the Fuji Speedway circuit to come home P7 in class together with the fastest lap of the race to see out the team’s domestic season on something of a high.

With the team about to confirm their new for 2024 Super GT driver line up as well as awaiting for confirmation of its continuation within the FIA World Endurance Championship, 2024 is again looking busy for the team as their continuation within the Super Taikyu Series goes without doubt.
