Motegi round moved to October

Japanese GP postponed to October 2 following the earthquake and tsunami disaster

Following the earthquake and tsunami disaster that have hit Japan the Motegi round has been rescheduled to October 2.

The Japanese GP will fall in the weeks between the Spanish round at Aragon and Phillip Island in Australia, due to damage sustained to the roads between Tokyo and Mito, the nearest town to the Motegi circuit.

Twin Ring Motegi has been closed since last week, with damages to the track surface and grandstands as a result of the earthquake.
