2020 Season Opener and First Test Extended
Japan Race Promotion announced on March 2, 2020 that the Super Formula season opener slated for April 4 and 5, as well as the pre-season test scheduled for March 9 and 10 have been postponed due to the wide-spread Corona Virus and health concern for fans, racing teams and drivers.
Akira Kurashita, president of Japan Race Promotion stated
“We can only imagine the difficulty to come to this decision to postpone the first race of 2020 by Suzuka Circuit, knowing that Super Formula fans have long anticipated the season to begin. The Corona Virus has taken such a widespread effect that we as the promoter of the Super Formula series stand by Suzuka Circuit’s decision. We hope to bring our fans a great Super Formula season, and sincerely wish that this dreadful virus subsides as quickly as possible. We look forward to seeing our fans under much better circumstances at the track when the season begins.”
