|Japan's SuperGT series is the racing home for a growing number of non-Japanese sportscars. Especially in the GT300 class, kind of an Asian interpretation of GT3.|
Porsche, Ferrari, Aston, BMW, Lambo. And now the return of Corvette.
The story gets going here, which reminded us of an earlier BBV post about Corvettes in Japan. TopSpeed.com picked up a few more facts and photos.
The Callaway will be prepped / raced by Tomei Sports, which ran a Porsche in SuperGT300 last year. One of the drivers will be drifter-racer, Okamura. He of the pink passioned Yashio Factory.
The other pilots are tabbed as 'gentlemen drivers'. So, not sure what to expect as to Corvette performance. But, good to have a C6 on the grid. And it seems the team won't let fans down with the other Japan racing accoutrements and accessories.
