4x 15-minute sessions decide the grids for this weekend’s two 60-minute races at Sportsland SUGO.

Japan’s largest motorsport facility is located towards the north-east of the country in the mountainous Miyagi Prefecture. It was completed in 1975, since when SUGO has regularly welcomed a variety of domestic categories, including Super Formula and Super GT. However, it rarely attracts continental or international series. Indeed, the current 12-turn, 3.7-kilomtere circuit that was first used in 1987 last hosted a major overseas event 20 years ago when the FIM Superbike World Championship made its final appearance there.

The track, which is initially quite technical before becoming progressively faster as the lap evolves, therefore represents something on an unknown quantity for Fanatec GT World Challenge Asia’s international teams. Instead, local outfits and drivers armed with Super GT and Super Taikyu experience should have the upper hand initially.

GT World is the official YouTube channel for SRO Motorsports Group, the global leader in GT racing.
