With little time to celebrate the Blancpain Pro-Am championship honours in Barcelona, TF Sport head straight off to the second round of the FIA World Endurance Championship which takes place this coming weekend at Fuji Speedway Japan.
While the opening round of the 2019-20 season at Silverstone didn’t go to plan, the #90 Aston Martin Vantage GTE certainly showed plenty of pace with drivers Salih Yoluç, Charlie Eastwood and Jonny Adam.
Nestled in the shadow of Mount Fuji, the 4.5 km circuit features a long straight – almost 1.5 km – and is expected to suit the characteristics of the #90 Aston Martin. Last year in Oyama, Indeed, TF Sport claimed the runner-up position and armed with the new GTE, the team fully expect to be challenging for victory on Sunday afternoon.
Tom Ferrier, TF Sport Director
“After not capitalising on our pace at Silverstone we have a lot to improve on at Fuji. We are very determined to deliver the result that the team and drivers deserve and make progress in the LMGTE Am standings.”
“I’ll visit Tokyo again like last year. I absolutely loved Japan and enjoyed my time there and it really is one of the races I look forward to most. I expect to win and nothing else. We just need a race without unlucky incidents and that win will come.”
“I’m looking forward to Fuji a great deal. Last year we got the second place finish and I enjoy the circuit itself, it should be good for the car. As a package, between the team, car and drivers we have a good chance of getting a good result, so the challenge for all of us is to get our first victory in WEC!”
“Silverstone wasn’t ideal but I’m looking forward to the fly-away events. We have shown great pace but didn’t get the result last time, so hopefully we’ll put that straight in Fuji and get the results we deserve, so fingers crossed it goes well.”
