The young ex-gamer enjoyed a stunning debut season in Japanese racing finishing second in the Formula 3 championship and becoming a race-winning, GT300 class championship-contenter with Kazuki Hoshino in Super GT.

To complete his first season in Japan at the NISMO Festival, Mardenborough yesterday got to drive a wide variety of machines including Michael Krumm’s 2011 FIA GT1 World Championship-winning GT-R, the 2015 Bathurst 12 Hour-winning GT-R GT3 NISMO and the Calsonic Nissan R92CP Group C sportscar.

“I’ve loved my first year in Japan, not only just racing out here but from a life experience perspective,” Mardenborough said.

“To get the chance to come over here and live in Japan for six months has been really interesting.

“I’ve learned a lot about the Japanese culture and it is nice to get the chance to travel the world and race in different countries as well. This was something that I never believed would be possible and get to drive such amazing cars like I have this weekend.

“It is work for me – but it doesn’t feel like it when get to drive and go racing with a few friends. I’ve really loved the whole experience in Super GT and Formula 3.”
