Super Formula averts WEC clash with revised schedule
Super Formula has revealed a revised seven-round schedule for the 2021 season, alleviating a clash with the FIA World Endurance Championship.
The Japanese series had revealed a schedule for next season back in August, but the following month the release of the 2021 WEC calendar created a conflict between the 6 Hours of Fuji and Super Formula’s Okayama round on September 25-26.
However, that has now been resolved with the latest version of the Super Formula calendar, which sees the Okayama race pushed back a week to October 2-3.
Additionally, the season finale at Suzuka has been brought forward by two weeks and is now slated to take place on October 30-31, one week before SUPER GT’s season finale.
The remainder of the schedule remains the same as the previous version, with Fuji Speedway – which hosted the final round of the coronavirus-impacted 2020 season last weekend – still set to hold the opening round on April 3-4.
2021 Super Formula calendar:
|Round 1||April 3-4||Fuji Speedway|
|Round 2||April 24-25||Suzuka Circuit|
|Round 3||May 15-16||Autopolis|
|Round 4||June 19-20||Sportsland SUGO|
|Round 5||August 28-29||Twin Ring Motegi|
|Round 6||October 2-3||Okayama International Circuit|
|Round 7||October 30-31||Suzuka Circuit|
