Joining the 24 teams already in SUPER GT, it was announced today at the 2005 SUPER GT Awards that 2004 Le Mans-winning outfit Team Goh will campaign a Maserati MC12 in the series next season.

Competing in the series for the first time since 1996, Team Goh will run one of the Italian supercars next year, and will feature the driver pairing of Dane Jan Magnussen and Japanese pilot Seiji Ara, one of the trio who took victory at Le Mans last year in the squad's Audi R8.

It was also officially announced that the car will run on Bridgestone rubber. A video-link address by team director Mr Kazumichi Goh made official the 2004 Le Mans-winning outfit's commitment to SUPER GT for 2006.

Other new machines will also feature in 2006. In GT300, the arrival of a Ford GT will be a crowd-pleaser; as well as the announcement of the Mooncraft 'Shiden' (taken from the name given to the successor to the famous Japanese 'Zero' warplane) concept car.

The 2006 SUPER GT season begins on the March 18-19 weekend at Okayama International Circuit, the first of nine rounds next year.
