Toyota Team Thailand will host the 2022 SUPER GT season

The only international participant in the championship is taking a year out of competition because restrictions on travel to Japan due to COVID-19 have been set to prevent Thai team owners from traveling to the country for the third season in a row.

This completes five years of participation in the SUPER GT for a team that has not brought points, although a return is scheduled for 2023.

After a couple of one-off trips to the local Buriram track, the Thai team first joined the SUPER GT full-time in 2017, preparing for the Toyota 86 Mother Chassis for Thai duo Nattapong Hortongkum and Nattavoude Charaensukhavatan.

He switched to the Lexus RC F GT3 for 2019, signing the 2018 GT300, which finished second, Sean Walkinshaw with partner Horthongkum, but the results were not achieved.

The team missed the first round of the 2020 season as COVID-19 restrictions disrupted its plans and then exposed a fully Japanese lineup of Masahiro Sasaki and Yui Tsutumi before Wokinsho returned to the final three races, joined by new subscriber Matthias Beche.

Since Hortongkum is still unable to race in 2021, Walkinshaw was a partner of Julian Alezi when the former Formula 2 driver and junior Ferrari embarked on a double program in Japan.

The team’s performance improved in the second half of the year after the team secured a new RC F chassis after Motegi’s July round, but Walkinshaw and Alesie still failed to improve on the team’s best result – 15th place as full-time participants. , getting only the best result of the 17th.

While Alessi has been promoted to drive the Toyota GT500 from TOM’S by 2022, Briton Wokinshaw has said he will focus on finding a drive on the European GT scene this year before the possible return of the SUPER GT in 2023.
