Having first embarked on a co-operation with the DTM all the way back in 2012, SUPER GT’s efforts to hold a joint exhibition race with the German series finally came to fruition in 2019 for the one-off ‘Dream Race’ held at Fuji Speedway.However, the alliance was effectively doomed by Audi’s factory withdrawal from the DTM last year, which forced the championship to abandon the Class One rules it had formulated with SUPER GT in favour of a move towards a customer-focused GT3 platform.Bandoh has underlined SUPER GT’s commitment to Class One until the end of the current rules cycle, which has been extended through to the end of 2023 in light of the development freeze introduced this year to control costs following the COVID-19 pandemic. In an interview with Motorsport.com, Bandoh said he hoped to encourage other Asian championships to adopt SUPER GT’s GT300 rules – a mixture of FIA GT3 machinery and home-grown cars built to the series’ own regulations – when asked about other opportunities for international growth in the future.
