Super Taikyu: Bad luck for Direction Racing Audi R8 LMS ultra at Suzuka

By Johan Laubscher

The Japanese Super Taikyu Endurance Series hosted round five at Suzuka this weekend. Direction Racing (K's Frontier) took part in the 140 minute race with their Audi R8 LMS ultra.

The #32 Audi R8 LMS ultra was driven by 
Taiyou Iida, Shinichi Takagi and Takashi Kobayashi.

The trio qualified fourth, but unfortunately retired from the race on lap two.

Autopolis will be hosting the sixth and final round of the 2014 Super Taikyu. It will be a three-hour event hosted from 8-9 November.
