The Raging Bull Comes to Japan's Storied Racing Ground – The Legendary Fuji Speedway

The Raging Bull Comes to Japan’s Storied Racing Ground – The Legendary Fuji Speedway
After the season-start race at Sepang and a record-breaking race in Sentul, Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo 2014 Asia Series will visit Japan between 29th and 31st of August for its 3rd race of the season. June's race weekend in Sentul marked the largest gathering of Lamborghinis in the history of Indonesia, both at the Sentul International Circuit and during the car parade in Jakarta. Now, the Super Trofeo Asia Series has moved north, to cooler climes. For three consecutive years, the Super Trofeo has come to the Land of the Rising Sun, lending this coming race weekend in Fuji a sense of tradition and continuity.

Host to the first-ever Formula 1 race in Japan in 1976, the Fuji Speedway is characterized by its length and high embankments and was designed by Tilke of Germany. Though originally designed to host NASCAR Japan races, the Speedway was converted into a road course early in its history. Adding to the challenge is the Fuji Speedway's reputation for danger due to the sharp turns of the track. Finally, the Fuji Speedway has one of the longest straightaways of all racetracks, at approximately 1.5 km long. This should be plenty of room for the gentlemen drivers to push their Lamborghinis to the roaring limit.
