An Audi R8 LMS ultra has arrived at Narita International Airport in Japan this week. The car is heading to Hitotsuyama Racing for the 2015 Japanese Super GT.
Hitotsuyama Racing's plans for the 2015 season have not yet been formally announced, but the news of the delivery of a second Audi R8 LMS ultra is good news, as it means that the Japanese Audi Sport Customer racing team will be continuing with Audi GT3 machinery in Japan for the fifth consecutive year.
This specific Audi R8 LMS ultra is one of the ex-Belgian Audi Club Team WRT cars from Europe.
Currently it is unclear whether Hitotsuyama Racing will be fielding a two-car entry in the 2015 Super GT, or if this ex-WRT Audi R8 LMS ultra will be replacing their car from the previous two years for a single-car entry. More news regarding the team's plans for 2015 is expected in the coming weeks.
