Super GT has opted for stability in its 2023 season calendar with the retention of an eight-round format featuring the same six venues that make up this year’s schedule.

The Japanese championship’s organizing body GTA has announced plans to continue with two events at Fuji Speedway and Suzuka, as well as single visits to Okayama, Sugo, Autopolis and Motegi. They are set to appear in the same order as the current season.

The 2023 campaign is due to start at Okayama on April 14-16, followed by a two-weekend break before a midweek fixture at Fuji in early May, set during a public holiday.

Suzuka will then host the third round in early June, followed by a repat of the Fuji-Suzuka order in August before the series heads to Sugo for the sixth round on Sep. 8-10.

Autopolis and Motegi round out the calendar, with the latter circuit due to host the season finale on Nov. 3-5 which is similar to the placement of this year’s closing race.

The 2021 Super GT schedule started at Okayama and concluded at Fuji, while the 2020 season was heavily affected by the coronavirus pandemic and ended up heading to Fuji four times alongside two rounds apiece at Motegi and Suzuka.

2023 Super GT Schedule
April 14-16 – Okayama
May 2-4 – Fuji
June 2-4 – Suzuka
Aug. 4-6 – Fuji
Aug. 25-27 – Suzuka
Sep. 8-10 – Sugo
Sep. 29-Oct. 1 – Autopolis
Nov. 3-5 – Motegi
