Super GT squad D’station Racing will contest the upcoming 2019-20 Asian Le Mans Series with an Aston Martin Vantage GT3.

The Japanese outfit is set for its debut in the championship, which gets underway next month at Shanghai International Circuit.

Aston Martin factory driver Ross Gunn, Super GT regular Tononobu Fujii and team owner Satoshi Hoshino will suit up for the full-season effort.

D’station ran the second-gen Vantage in both Super GT and the Japanese Super Taikyu series this year and gave the car its first-ever global victory in the latter’s season opener at Suzuka back in March.

Both Hoshino and Gunn, whose Asian LMS commitments will take place during his full FIA World Endurance Championship program, are series debutants.

Fujii, meanwhile, made his most recent and only appearance in a one-off drive for Craft Racing in 2013, behind the wheel of a previous-gen Aston Martin Vantage GT3.

D’station will become the first team to run the second-gen Vantage in Asian LMS, off the back of Red River by TF Sport’s full-season entry with the previous iteration of the package in 2018-19.
