D’Station Racing will expand their Aston Martin programme from Japan and Asia, to also include the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2021.
The Japanese team will be working together with TF Sport, so they will enter a GTE Am car for this upcoming season.
D’Station has been active in both Super GT and Super Taikyu, while they made their debut in the Asian Le Mans Series for the 2019/20 season.
They had posted an entry for Le Mans 2020, but was put on the reserve list initially, and were quite far down the list, so decided to pull their entry. Unfortunately – because there was a lot of drop-off from other teams for the 2020 edition, so they would probably have been able to do the race anyway.
The team will once again enter the Asian Le Mans Series, which starts in three weeks’ time in Dubai.
Tomonobu Fujii and Satoshi Hoshino are the two drivers announced so far, and they will most likely be joined by an Aston Martin factory driver as the third member of the team.
The team will have to miss their regular car number 77, since Dempsey-Proton Racing already has taken that one. Instead, they will go for 777.
The FIA WEC 2021 season is scheduled to start at Sebring in two months’ time.
