Effective March 30th, 2017, Super GT World is proud to announce a new alliance with international sports car racing publication Dailysportscar.com as Super GT World founder/editor/contributor/general person-at-large, R.J. O’Connell (that’s me, hi!) has joined Dailysportscar’s team as correspondent for the Autobacs Super GT Series.
In addition to the regular news, analysis, commentary, and reports from Super GT World as it starts its first full season in 2017, expect to see monthly columns and features for Dailysportscar over the course of the season.
The partnership begins with a multi-installment, comprehensive season preview for the 2017 Super GT season, which begins on April 9 with the Okayama GT 300km Race at Okayama International Circuit.
Graham Goodwin, editor-in-chief – Dailysportscar:
In amongst the ever increasing congestion to the sportscar racing calendar there are always races and series that scream out to be given more attention.
One of those is Super GT and we’ll be changing that situation for the Japanese-based super series right now after such a positive reaction to DSC’s 2016 coverage.
In light of that we would like to welcome RJ O’Connell to the DSC team, whose Super GT World website has long been a source for the best, most accurate and most comprehensive news and feature content.
Alongside this partnership, Super GT World continues of course, but thanks to RJ’s input, and an increased level of contact from here on in with the major Japanese factory efforts, we hope to provide a turbocharged four pot of coverage from here on in.
And also a word from R.J.
I just want to thank everyone for your positive reactions to the news today that have been coming in through social media. This is somewhat of a dream come true – the works and commentary from DSC was one of the inspirations for me originally launching Super GT World.
Thanks to the family, thanks to the friends who have supported me over the last few years, thanks to everyone who has supported Super GT World since I started it in July, and it is my sincerest hope that I may continue to improve in my craft.
