Lyons set for Super GT Round 4 – Motorsport.ie

SuperGT hits its halfway point in the championship season and its back at Fuji Speedway Japan for round 4. Fuji Speedway, the only track to feature twice in the SuperGT calendar and will again be tricky for the Hitotsuyama racing/WRT combinations R8 Ultra, but after some great testing and preparation through the June and July break in action they will be looking for a strong finish at this famous track.

Richard Lyons: “Looking forwards to getting back out there in our Super GT Audi R8 at Fuji Speedway for Rd 4. This past week WRT staff joined with Hitotsuyama team to prepare and train for the upcoming races. Fuji hasn’t brought us much luck recently but I feel that we have prepared well so look forwards to some just rewards!”

Fuji Speedway is a motorsport race track standing in the foothills of Mount Fuji, in Oyama, Suntō District, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. It was built in the early 1960s and hosted the first Formula One race in Japan in 1976. In the 1980s, Fuji Speedway was used for the FIA World Sportscar Championship and national racing. Originally managed by Mitsubishi Estate Co., Fuji Speedway was acquired by Toyota Motor Corporation in 2000. The circuit hosted the Formula One Japanese Grand Prix in 2007, after an absence of 30 years, replacing the Suzuka Circuit, owned by Honda.
