Super Formula’s pre-season test and season opening race at Suzuka have been cancelled due to the spread of Wuhan novel coronavirus in Japan.

The first of SF’s two March tests was to take place at Suzuka in one week’s time, and a decision to close off the adjacent hotel to the circuit and general admission passes fueled speculation that the test would be cancelled.

A postponement was confirmed to be the case in a circuit statement on Monday, which also revealed that the circuit’s traditional season opening slot on April 5 will be lost and rescheduled for a later date.
