D’station Racing has signed British teenager Casper Stevenson to its Aston Martin GTE-Am program in the FIA World Endurance Championship.

The 19-year-old will make his WEC debut this year in the Japanese team’s TF Sport-run No. 777 Aston Martin Vantage GTE, sharing the wheel with D’station regulars Tomonobu Fujii and Satoshi Hoshino.

Stevenson stepped into GT racing this year, driving for Akkodis ASP in the Silver Cup class of Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe powered by AWS.

The ex-Euroformula Open driver raced a Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo but is now set for his first season at the wheel of an Aston Martin, as well as his first stint in the GTE ranks.

Stevenson replaces fellow Brit Charlie Fagg as the designated Silver-rated driver in the No. 777 crew. Fagg was upgraded to FIA Gold status after the 2022 season.

D’station is gearing up for its third campaign in the GTE-Am class after making its debut in 2021.

It finished 10th in the standings last year, with the highlight result being a podium on home soil at the 6 Hours of Fuji.

“I am very excited to announce our entry to the 2023 FIA World Endurance Championship,” said D’station managing director Fujii.

“We are honored to be a part of this series and the 100th anniversary of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

“With the trusted support of TF Sport, D’station Racing will compete for even better results in its third season. I want to thank everyone for their continued support and look forward to an excellent year.”

TF Sport team principal Tom Ferrier added: “It was superb to see D’station Racing on the podium at their home race last season and I’m glad we are continuing the partnership with them in the WEC.

“I have no doubt that it will be another fruitful year for them and this time we will be aiming for a strong finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and an even stronger championship result!”

In addition to the WEC program, D’station Racing will also contest next month’s Asian Le Mans Series with Hoshino, Fujii and Fagg.
