I’m here in Japan to cover the Super Taikyu 2012 series official testing session.
To be held at Fuji Speedway tomorrow, I’m hoping that the testing session will not be cancelled due to bad weather conditions. The Super GT testing was cancelled because of snow and my fingers are crossed for otherwise!
Four-time Super Taikyu champion PETRONAS Syntium Team will be debuting their Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 in Super Taikyu.
This is the same car that won the Merdeka Millennium Endurance Race last year!
PETRONAS Syntium Team is owned and founded by Singaporean David Wong, who has brought the team to over 100 victories over 2 decades of racing.
Here’s a happy Fariqe Hairuman, PST’s longest-serving driver…
He’s getting his seat size right, looking all cosy in that EUR 19,000 carbon fibre racing seat!
Hope to hear good news from me about the testing tomorrow…
