“I’m really happy that Strakka Racing is heading to Japan with a full three car attack on the Suzuka 10 Hours,” said Leventis. “Japan is a country we have history in from competing in the World Endurance Championship and also from our prior partnership with Dome so we’re no strangers to Japanese motorsport.

“We’re very much looking forward to competing in the biggest GT race at Suzuka and we’re aiming for top results in both the Pro and Pro-Am classes.”

Strakka Racing Director Jay Davenport added: “Coming off the back of a very strong result in Spa, we are delighted to be able to confirm that we will be entering three cars in the Suzuka 10 Hours. This will be the first time we have competed in this particular event and we are looking forward to heading there in our first year as a customer Mercedes-AMG racing team.

“We have a fantastic driver line-up and we are confident of heading to Japan and securing a good result with all three entries.”
