Jono Lester says farewell to Gulf Racing

Happy New Year to all of you! My start to 2018 has been a challenging one, with unexpected news over the Christmas break that Gulf Racing was having its budget cut for the upcoming SUPER GT season.

Front Row Start & More Points at Fuji 500km for Jono Lester

Fuji unearthed our potential, as well as our flaws. For that reason, it was a vitally important event for myself and Gulf Racing Japan, as we mount a championship challenge in SUPER GT this year. We knew we had a quick car, and second place in
