JAPANESE Formula 3 race-winner Gary Thompson is participating in the 2012 Formula Nippon rookie test at Fuji Speedway this Monday and Tuesday, after being giving an exceptional opportunity to test with SGC by KCMG for the second year in succession.
The Donabate ace, who has been ever impressive for the Hong Kongbased team since his debut in the 2011 Japanese F3 Championship, will get six hours behind the wheel of the team's Formula Nippon challenger as he evaluates a full-time switch to the series in 2013. Delighted to have been given the opportunity to test over the two-day period, Thompson commented that he was focused on making the most of his time in the car.
'I'm delighted that SGC by KCMG have given me the opportunity to jump into Formula Nippon machinery again,' said Thompson. 'It will be a very good experience. I have been training very hard in preparation for the test as it was very demanding last year. My aim is to build on last year's performance in the car and keep improving, as it is a car that I want to be racing in 2013. 'I'd like to say a big thank you to SGC by KCMG, Aviation Display, Smart Lamp and Cebu Pacific Air for their on-going support.'
