Last month’s season opener at the new Inje Speedium in Korea featured a scant 9-car grid. While all teams will return, they’ll be joined by nearly a dozen GT300 car from Japan’s Super GT championship.

The Fuji round will count as a points-paying event for the Super GT teams, delivering a variety of GT3-based cars to the grid, including Nissan GT-Rs, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMGs, as well as GT300-spec Honda CRZs and a Subaru BRZ.

There have been a number of driver changes for Fuji, including revised lineups in both LMP2 class Morgans, along with the absence of Kamui Kobayashi and Stefan Mucke from the GT ranks, who will be on FIA World Endurance Championship duty at COTA.

“We’re delighted to be having our second race at Fuji Speedway,” said Asian LMS Managing Director Mark Thomas. “It is a great facility and is matched by our very strong line-up.

“We are pleased with what we managed to achieve in Inje and everyone involved is looking forward to building upon that success. Given the popularity of SUPER GT, and motorsports in general, in Japan it’s going to be a great weekend for the fans too.”
