A big fan of the ever-exciting AUTOBACS Super GT? Never missed a round in catching the high-speed Japanese machine racing along its European counterparts at our own Sepang International Circuit? Then this is a bit of news that you might be interested in hearing. Super GT’s official web page had recently released the calendar for their 2014 race season and to our horror, we found that Sepang International Circuit is no longer there!
Although Super GT did added that it is their planned schedule for 2014, the nine rounds plus one will be held in Japan and two foreign locations; in which those two are the Republic of Korea and the Kingdom of Thailand.
According to the calendar, the 2014 Super GT will kick start on April 5-6 at Okayama, Japan, with its first foreign event being held at Korea on June 28-29 (Round 4). While the circuit for the Korea round has yet to be announced, the Round 8 in Thailand will be held at the Buriram International Circuit on October 4-5.
Super GT did add that the schedule has been filed for approval by the FIA, and changes are possible to changes in other world championship races. Nevertheless, if you have caught the GT300 and GT500 machines at Sepang this year, you are one of the lucky ones as of right now, there is a big possibility that they are not stopping by our home turf next year. Do you think that Super GT had done a big mistake, or is it better for them to just find another venue than Sepang to host the race?
