Super GT outfit D’station Racing partners with TF Sport for WEC debut

D’station Racing has partnered with TF Sport to run a second Aston Martin Vantage GTE in the 2021 FIA WEC and its GTE-Am category.

TF Sport will introduce a second entry in GTE-Am with a partnership with D’station Racing under the #777 car number.

“I am very excited to announce our entry for the FIA World Endurance Championship and the 89th 24 Hours of Le Mans,” said Tomonobu Fujii, Team Managing Director of D’station Racing.

This announcement comes shortly after TF Sport confirmed their continuation in the WEC’s GTE-Am category, with an Aston Martin Vantage GTE.

The Japanese racing outfit are well noted for their efforts in Super GT where they have piloted success with an Aston Martin GT3 (#777) since 2019, when the British manufacturer entered the championship.

Bronze driver Satoshi Hoshino will share the #777 Vantage GTE with Fujii, and a silver driver yet to be announced will join them too.

He continued: “Being able to compete in the FIA WEC has been a major goal for D’station Racing since its inauguration.

“As this project comes to fruition, I recall all the preparation we went through with Aston Martin, AMR, and Tom Ferrier from TF Sport.

“I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart for their ongoing support.”

Tom Ferrier, Team Owner of TF Sport added: “As a fellow partner team of AMR, we know them well and I hope that by us joining forces with them for 2021 in WEC, we will deliver a long and successful relationship for many years to come.”

Although D’station Racing have yet to assert their Super GT plans in 2021, they will be keen on fighting for podiums and wins in the class, plus aiming to tackle the Le Mans 24 Hours in the competitive category.

Season 9 of the WEC is set to take off at the 1000 Miles of Sebring on March 18/19 where their WEC journey will begin.
