Second Sugo race cancelled due to poor weather conditions

The second race of the opening TCR Japan Series weekend at Sugo should have taken place today, but bad weather conditions forced the organisers to cancel the competition.

The race was due to start at 13:55 local time (06:55 CEST), with the organisers delaying the start until 14:50 due to heavy fog.

With the sunset looming, the race was cancelled as the conditions did not improve.

Takuro Shinohara of Team Hitotsuyama won the opening race, that also was delayed due to fog, yesterday and has claimed the championship lead on 25 points, seven more than Kengo Ichijo, driving a Cupra TCR from BRP.

The next round of the TCR Japan Series is scheduled for the 28-29th of August at Motegi.
