It’s a fresh challenge for TF Sport as they head to Fuji Speedway, Japan for the first of the fly-away races on the FIA World Endurance Championship calendar this coming weekend (12-14 October).
The team raced at the front on home-soil at Silverstone until a late race penalty, but It’s been a strong campaign to date with two second place finishes in the GTE-Am class.
Now the #90 Aston Martin Vantage GTE team are aiming to go one better and make it a famous first trip to Asia. With 36 points on the board, TF Sport are fifth in the standings, just one-point shy of the #98 Aston Martin and five behind the #56 Team Project entry.
“We have been bridesmaids twice, third time isn’t lucky, so we’re going to Fuji to win!”
Tom Ferrier, TF Sport Director
“I’ve been looking forward to this one all season long. It’s our first time competing at Fuji and I think we’ll be strong on track and should be in the running for the race win. On top of that it’s a new experience for us all and we’re really looking forward to the whole experience of racing in Japan.”
“We’ve had good results so far, but we really want to win so we can close down the points difference to the championship leader. I expect we will get to run in varied weather conditions and that’s one aspect that is bound to be unpredictable. I believe we will be strong and if we have some luck on our side, for a change, then we should be good.”
