The duo have been a mainstay of the GT4 ranks since the championship’s formation in 2017 and will continue with the same Mercedes-AMG they campaigned throughout last season.
Five podiums resulted in them finishing fifth in the final standings, although a first victory still eluded them. That’s a stat the Japanese team is eager to change in 2020 when they aim to mount a sustained championship challenge.
“Our drivers, car and team were able to gain a great deal of experience in 2019,” said team manager Yuki Kusunoki. “And with this, we collectively become so much stronger. In 2020 we also expect to try out a new set-up, which we didn’t have the chance to last year.”
The Mercedes-AMG will again feature its familiar chrome blue, black and gold livery, while the team is truly pan-Asian thanks to Taiwanese and Hong Kong drivers, Chinese mechanics, plus a Japanese team manager and engineer.
Sepang hosts the opening round of 2020’s GT World Challenge Asia campaign on March 28/29.
