Race calendar and results

  • All races will be held in Japan. A non-championship round, entitled Super GT and Formula Nippon Sprint Cup 2011, will be held at the conclusion of the season.[6] The opening round at Suzuka was rescheduled from 16-17 April to 14-15 May due to the T?hoku earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in March.[7] As a result, the first Twin Ring Motegi round scheduled for that weekend was rescheduled to 6 November with the originally scheduled Suzuka race moved forward to September.
