Super Taikyu Round 2 postponed to October to prevent spread of coronavirus

On March 30, the Super Taikyu Organization (STO), which runs the Pirelli Super Taikyu Series, were supposed to launch the second round of the SUGO Super Taikyu 3 Hours, scheduled to be held from April 25-26. But due to the coronavirus pandemic, It has been announced that it will be postponed to October 3-4 to prevent the spread of infection.

The first round of the Pirelli Super Endurance Series was scheduled for March 21-22 at Suzuka, but has been postponed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Following this, the postponement of Round 2 SUGO has also been decided. An alternative schedule is currently scheduled for October 3-4, but this may be changed again due to schedule adjustments throughout the motorsports world.


STO’s CEO Harumi Kuwayama said in a tweet, “Unfortunately, we will postpone the Rd.2 Sugo tournament. It is scheduled for Saturday, October 3 and 4. I’m just praying that we can meet you all on the circuit as soon as possible. We look forward to working with you in the future.”

The Pirelli Super Taikyu Series is scheduled for the third round, with Fuji Super TEC 24 Hours on June 5-7. This will begin once the situation has eased, but there is currently no announcement about Round 3. The postponement of the opening three races has also been announced for the Super GT, and it may be difficult to hold the race for a while.
