After an exciting and rewarding third round of the Blancpain GT Series Asia Championship in Suzuka, which saw Thailand’s Sandy Stuvik clinch his first podium and class victory in GT cars, the Ban Chang based driver is prepared to do it all again at the following Japanese round, located in the foothills of the famous Mount Fuji. The Fuji Speedway will be hosting the fourth round of the series this coming weekend from 18-20 August.
“I’ve never driven at Fuji before, so it will be a new experience for me,” commented Stuvik. “I have done as much research and sim laps on the circuit as I can, to be ready for the first practice on Friday. Due to the circuit’s geographical location, we will be hoping for some rain throughout the weekend to boost our chances”.
During the Fuji weekend, Stuvik will once again be reuniting his partnership with Croatian driver Martin Kodric. The goal for the weekend will be to try to score as many points as possible, to try to gain back what was lost earlier in the season.
“Although the Fuji circuit does not play to the strengths of our Lamborghini Huracan GT3, we will be trying to extract as much time from the corners as possible to minimize our loss on the straights. I am looking forward to going racing again, but our main aim this weekend will be to try to finish as well as possible, and to get points in both races.” Stuvik explained.
The series takes a 1 month break following the Japan leg and will recommence on September 23 in Shanghai, China.
