Snow, fog converge to cancel Sunday testing at Fuji

Inclement weather forced the cancellation of Sunday’s Super GT test sessions at Fuji Speedway, bringing a premature end to pre-season testing for the 2017 season.

With snow falling in the area overnight, and fog rolling over the circuit later in the day, the GT Association and Fuji Speedway first announced that Session 3 would be partially cancelled from 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM JST, and the pit lane would be open to all spectators who braved the snow and fog.

The decision was eventually made to cancel Session 3 entirely as of 10:30 AM JST, and with many team personnel and drivers making plans to depart the circuit, it was decided that all on-track tests would be abandoned for the day.

The next time the Autobacs Super GT Series will be in action is on the weekend of April 8-9 for Round 1 of the 2017 season at Okayama International Circuit.
