D'Station Racing double success within GT World Challenge Asias Japan Cup

Sunday, July 07, 2024


The Earl Bamber Motorsport team were not the only Aston Martin Racing powered crew to enjoy podium success at this weekend’s GT World Challenge Asia Series visited Suzuka in Japan for their fifth round of the season.

Full season entrants D’Station Racing were of course again in attendance with their #777 Vantage GT3 of Satoshi Hoshino and Tomonobu Fujii but it was their sister #47 car of Tatsuya Hoshino and Kenji Hama who would again grab the headlines.

Having opened the Japan Cup sub class of the series within one of the team’s Vantage GT3’s, the ‘more senior’ drivers this time elected to run the third round of the Japan Cup within a Vantage GT4 having struggled last time out at Fuji Speedway, ending with a DNF.

Whilst the #777 car did do better than last time out with a P5 GT3 Pro-Am class finish at the end of race one on Saturday and a P9 finish at the end of Sunday’s closing GTWCAsia event, it was the separately running Japan Cup entry of the #47 car who scooped a pair of GT4 Am Class wins who grabbed the headlines for the AMR Partner team.

As far as Championship standings are concerned, the #777 GT3 Pro-Am crew now sit P13 in class with the #8 EMB car in P6 whilst in the Japan Cup, the #47 crew share both a fifth within GT3 Am and eleventh within GT4 Am.

Next round is at Okayama, Japan at the end of August.
