54 Car Entry List For Motegi Super Taikyu 5 Hours Race

First race of the Hankook era begins Sunday, following the 12 Hours of Sebring

The Super Taikyu Organisation (S.T.O.) has released the entry list for the first round of the 2021 Super Taikyu Series Powered by Hankook, the Motegi Super Taikyu 5 Hours Race at Twin Ring Motegi.

The 5-hour race will be streamed live, flag-to-flag, and free around the world from the Super Taikyu Series’ YouTube channel with Japanese commentary, with the green flag set to drop at 11:45 JST / 2:45 GMT / 13:45 AEDT / Saturday 22:45 EDT. For reference, that’s just 35 minutes after the chequered flag is scheduled to come down on the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring.

Of the 61 entries that were announced in the annual entry list, 54 of them will take part in this event, headlined by six GT3 cars in the ST-X class, with the championship up for grabs after the departure of reigning ST-X Champions Mercedes-AMG Team Hirix Racing – and a whopping fifteen GT4 cars in the ST-Z class including four new Toyota GR Supra GT4s.

Speaking of new vehicles, the KTM X-Bow GTX and fifth-generation Toyota GR Supra will make their debuts in ST-1, while the experimental ST-Q class appears for the first time with ROOKIE Racing’s non-homologated GR Supra based on the GT4 model.

The names and teams on the entry list are subject to change up until the start of the weekend, with a number of driver slots still to be announced.

Entries will be finalised on the evening of Friday, 19 March (JST).

UPDATE (19 March) – The entry list is now at 51 cars, following the withdrawal of three teams before the event. All drivers have been finalized.
