GT300 Ford GT Takes To The Track
It was just beyond the team’s capability to get the DHG Advan Ford GT on track for the opening round of the Super GT Championship at Suzuka a fortnight ago, but the car was up and running today, March 28, for day 1 of the two day official test at Fuji Speedway

Early running saw the big American supercar some 3.5 seconds off the leading GT300 runners, but it’s very early days for the Hidetoshi Mitsusada and Daisuke Ikeda pedalled machine.

It looks certain that the Ford GT’s very familiar silhouette will make its racing debut in 10 days time at the Okayama International circuit, where the big 5.5 litre V8-engined car will cross swords with the Lamborghini Murcielagos, which put up such a strong showing in the opening race.
