6 Hours of Fuji

This race snuck up on me after the conclusion of the Tudor IMSA championship, but we get to see the WEC back in action at Japan this coming weekend. Hopefully this race gets off better than it did last year. The LMP1 battle should be tight as ever, will Toyota be able to win their home race?

There is another typhoon set to hit Japan but it may not affect Fuji.

Hard to imagine a typhoon hitting a country the size of California and not effecting the entire country...fingers crossed. Will be watching trackside at the scca runoffs at laguna seca..

Please no more rain and even if it rains, no one will get hurt.

I'm afraid that the typhoon Vongfong could cause several problems.

If it follows the same path as Phanfone, it will skirt the south eastern edges of Japan. It will depend on its speed as well. If it moves slowly, it wont affect the race.

CotA's downpour 'adventures' by several certainly don't boost confidence.

In terms of support package for Fuji, I think it would of been good to have an Asian le mans series race on the Saturday (like what happens at Silverstone with the ELMS and WEC ) to build support for the regional series

AsLMS wants to stand on its own, not as a support series. So even though that suggestion is logical, its not probable. With Toyota in the series, and owning Fuji, they get a massive boost. Next year will be even bigger with Nissan.
