Aston Martin will return to the Japanese Autobacs Super GT Championship in 2020 with its partner team Pacific D’station Racing. The team will run a Michelin tire-equipped Vantage GT3 in the GT300 class.
Following a strong debut season for the Aston Martin Racing-built Vantage GT3 in Japan, where it took two Super Taikyu victories, Pacific D’station Racing has decided to return. Joining the team for this year is works driver and FIA WEC GTE driver Nicki Thiim.
David King, president of Aston Martin Racing, said, “Our partner Pacific D’station Racing has put together a highly promising package that I expect to be able to compete at the front of the GT300 class in Japan.
“It’s a very important market for the Vantage GT3 to break into and as our customer team expansion continues around the world, I anticipate that success in Japan will help us to capitalize on the interest we are already seeing in the region.”
