A rising Marton motorsport star is set to join the Formula Regional Japanese Championship for their second round next month, with his sights on a future in Asia.
Kaleb Ngatoa will race under the Suketina team banner, which utilises staff from leading Super Formula team TGM and has a close working relationship with it.
Following Ngatoa’s success in the Formula Regional Oceania Championship in February, he will be heading to Japan to compete at the Suzuka circuit on the weekend of May 12 – 14.
Japan is no stranger to New Zealand drivers, with some of the country’s biggest names taking on their toughest categories. Nick Cassidy, the latest race winner in the FIA Formula E Championship, used Japan to grow his career and conquered both the Super Formula and Super GT Championships in the same year.
