Cancellation of the 43rd "Coca-Cola" Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance Race

2019-2020 FIM Endurance World Championship Final Round, the 43rd "Coca-Cola" Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance Race, which was previously scheduled to be held at Suzuka Circuit from October 30th (Fri.) to November 1st (Sun.) 2020 will be canncelled.

We have been preparing for this race until now, but in light of the continued spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in Japan and overseas and the resulting preventative measures being enacted in each region, as well as the fact that there is no prospect at this stage of deregulation of immigration restrictions on visitors coming to Japan from abroad, which will make it difficult for international teams to enter Japan, the decision has been made to cancel the race.

We extend our apologies and regrets to all the fans who were looking forward to attending the Suzuka 8 Hours and to all of the other stakeholders involved in this race event. We ask for your kind understanding regarding this unavoidable cancellation.

Kaoru Tanaka, President Representative Director of Mobilityland Corporation commented:
"We had been preparing for the "Coca-Cola" Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance Race to be held on November 1st together with all of the fans and stakeholders involved in this race event but, with anguish, we find no alternative but to make the decision to cancel it in consideration of the continued spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in Japan and overseas and the fact that there is no prospect of deregulation of immigration restrictions on visitors from abroad at this stage in Japan.
Once again, we extend our apologies and regrets to all the fans who were looking forward to attending the Suzuka 8 Hours, which had been postponed from the originally scheduled date in July to November. We also extend our sincere regrets to all of the other stakeholders involved in this race event and we ask for everyone’s kind understanding and cooperation going forward.
In closing, let us say that we are determined to make preparations so that the 2021 Suzuka 8 Hours event will be even more enjoyable for the fans than ever before."
