Talented young Australian Jake Parsons can’t wait to get back behind the wheel and on the track again, as the Autobacs Super GT championship returns to action this weekend following its summer break. Reaching round 4, the mid-way point of the season, the ultra-competitive Japanese series heads to Sportsland Sugo, a challenging 3.737km/2.323 mile track in Murata from 22-23 July
“I'm very keen to get going at Sugo; I had an official series test there last month, so the circuit is one I am familiar with. It’s quite a small circuit and one that will be critical to get the strategy right on for pit stops,” explained the 22-year-old.
Parsons, who drives the #26 Taisan SARD Audi R8 V10 in the GT 300 class, showed impressive speed and race-craft at the last race in Autopolis and is and is intent on continuing that positive progress.
“The team and I are eager to make some inroads on the setup as there is always room to grow in our performance. Autopolis was a great indication of our potential as I gained ten places in the race, so we’re excited to keep pushing forward together,” said the 2014 AsiaCup Champion.
“I’m looking forward to putting on a strong performance and continuing to make my mark on Super GT.”
Round 4 of the Autobacs Super GT series takes place at Sugo on 22-23 July. You can follow all the action live via the NISMO TV You Tube channel.
