For the 2012 Super Taikyu Series, the PETRONAS Syntium Team retains its three professional GT drivers Nobuteru Taniguchi (since 2008), Tatsuya Kataoka (since 2008) and Masataka Yanagida (since 2007) as well as Malaysians Fariqe Hairuman (since 2001) and Dominic Ang (since 2011). New to the team this year are rookies Jono Lester of New Zealand and Ryan Ritchie, a graduate of the PETRONAS Formula Xperience (PFX) racing school. Melvin Moh, also formerly from PFX, drove for the team in 2010 and makes a comeback this season.
Focusing more on driver development this year, only one of the three required drivers per car will be a professional Japanese driver, so that the other drivers can get more seat time.
Here are video introductions of each driver:
