After an impressive performance in the tricky conditions at Sugo, Australian Jake Parsons is looking forward to chasing his best result of the season, as the Autobacs Super GT returns to Fuji International Speedway this weekend.
As the ultra-competitive Japanese series heads back to the challenging 16-turn, 4.563km (2.835 mile) circuit for round five, 22-year-old Parsons explained, “I’m really looking forward to our second race at Fuji this year. There is a lot we can build on from our previous event here.”
The #26 Team Taisan SARD Audi R8 V10 driver is feeling especially positive about the improvements and developments the team have made over recent weeks
“We’ve made a lot of progress together in testing and during race events. Our dry pace, in particular, has improved recently, so I’m really keen to get our best result of the season so far at Fuji this weekend,” added the 2014 AsiaCup champion.
Parsons, who now lives in Japan, is really settling in to the country’s premier motorsports category, and thoroughly enjoying how challenges it brings are helping take his career to the next level.
“I’m coming in to my stride in Super GT now and looking forward to continuing to grow as a driver, achieving my own set of goals on the track and in developing the car too.”
Round five of the Autobacs Super GT series takes place at Fuji on 5-6 August. You can follow all the action live via the NISMO TV You Tube channel.
