Japan’s Super Formula series comes back to life as the opening round of the 2021 championship takes place at Fuji Speedway.

In the national single-seater series, Japan’s top talents compete in a seven-round championship in Dallara SF19 machines with Honda and Toyota drives.

A wide open title fight is expected, sparked by three-time and defending champion Naoki Yamamoto, who leaves Dandelion Racing for Nakajima Racing and is led by Satoru Nakajima, the first Japanese driver to score points in Formula 1 in 1987.

Yamamoto has had problems with pre-season testing so far, while the departure of 2019 champion Nick Cassidy to Formula E will spark an intriguing battle for the championship. Teens like Toshiki Oyu, Nirei Fukuzumi, and Ritomo Miyata are expected to shine.

Drivers will also try to use a push-to-pass system, which has been increased to 200 seconds for 2021.

Australia’s legendary Mount Panorama hosts its annual 6-hour Easter motor sports festival in Bathurst with production cars, TCR touring cars and GT3 sports cars.

The third round of TCR Australia takes place on the famous 6.2 km long track, in which the two-liter class tackles the mountain for the first time.

2014 Supercars star and Bathurst 1000 winner Chaz Mostert (Audi) leads the overall standings with just 15 points after winning two of the three races at Phillip Island the last time.

Audi teammate Luke King is in second place, although the pair will face stiff competition from a car chase that includes former Supercars full-time workers Lee Holdsworth (Alfa Romeo), Tony D’Alberto (Honda), Garth Tander (Audi ) and Michael Caruso (Alfa Romeo).

The outing should also provide a glimpse into the form book before the 500km TCR Bathurst International race with two drivers in November.

GT Racing returns to Mount Panorama courtesy of GT World Challenge Australia after missing Bathurst 12 Hour.

Current Supercars championship leader Shane van Gisbergen has been declared competitive despite breaking his collarbone in a mountain bike incident last month.

The New Zealander has won all five Supercars races this season and will be a favorite in the Triple Eight Mercedes AMG GT3, which he will share with Prince Jefri Ibrahim.

Ibrahim finished second in the opening lap at Phillip Island, riding alongside seven-time Supercars champion Jamie Whincup.

The field will try to compete against the double winners Garth Tander and Yasser Shahin, who won both races in their Audi R8 LMS GT3 supported by The Bend Motorsport Park.

In the meantime, a bumper field with 62 production cars will line up on Easter Sunday to contest the 6-hour long-distance race in Bathurst.

A total of 15 brands and 35 models will be represented at the annual series exhibition in Australia.

The field will include aspiring Supercars stars Broc Feeney and Brodie Kostecki under a number of established production car names, all of whom hope to win the famous trophy.
