Super Taikyu: Unlucky end of season for Direction Racing Audi R8 LMS ultra at Autopolis

By Johan Laubscher

The Japanese Super Taikyu Endurance Series hosted its sixth and final round of 2014 at Autopolis in Japan this weekend.

Direction Racing (K's Frontier), who has been a full season entrant in the Super Taikyu, entered their #32 Audi R8 LMS ultra. The driving trio of Takashi Kobayashi, Arte Rossi and Daisuke Yamawaki were behind the wheel of the team’s Audi GT3 machine.

Qualifying saw the Japanese drivers qualifying fourth on the grid. The three hour race on Sunday concluded with an unfortunate retirement for the Direction Racing squad after forty-eight laps of the race.

This event concluded the 2014 Super Taikyu season.
