The new entry will carry the #6 previously used by last year's champion outfit Team LeMans, which has dropped off the SUPER GT grid for the 2020 campaign. Inging used the number for its first-ever season in the All-Japan GT Championship (JGTC) in 1998.
Inging's expansion into GT300 comes at the same time as it doubles its efforts in the senior GT500 class, where it will field two brand-new GR Supras - one under the familiar 'Team Cerumo' banner and one under the 'Team Rookie' banner. The latter operation effectively replaces Team LeMans on the GT500 grid, also taking over sponsor Wako's.
Inging will also use the 'Team Rookie' moniker in Super Formula for its third car to be driven by Kazuya Oshima, who raced for Team LeMans in both that series and SUPER GT last year.
