A Round of Firsts – Japan Auto Round 3

August 5, 2013 in Japan Auto, Reports and Results

The Japan Auto series has for the longest while been regarded as the feeder series for the bigger championships, and a great series for new drivers to cut their teeth on. It’s also the series known for many ‘firsts’. This past weekend’s japan auto series was no different, living up to its reputation. The event saw three 16 years olds competing in the form of Juan Lister, JP vd Spuy and Marisca Dyke. It also saw, for the first time, three females competing. Clare Vale, Roelien du Toit and the aforementioned Marisca van Dyke all strutted their stuff on the day.

New drivers joining the event were Deon van Emmenes in a rotary poweed E30 BMW, Theo de Wet in a stock-ish S13 Nissan 200SX, Henno van Staden piloting a MKIV Supra and Juan Lister in his S13 taking part in only his second event. Andre Neethling competed in his first event in the ex-Lee-Roy Frans MkIII Toyota Supra.
