Japan is still recovering from last week’s record-breaking 9.0 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami. Sadly, reports say one of the nation’s great racetracks, Sportsland Sugo, has sustained damage. Located in the hard-hit Miyagi Prefecture, Sugo was built in 1975 by Yamaha, and is a regular stop on the Super GT circuit. It’s also hosted World Superbike Championships, World Motocross Championships, and the Rock Olympics, one of northeast Japan’s largest music festivals.
Here’s a video of a station wagon race held at Sugo, giving us dreams of taking the JNC wagon there someday.
And here’s a Juichi Wakisaka, co-founder of the Save Japan earthquake relief campaign, in a nail-biting duel with former F1 driver Erik Comas in JGTC Supras.
And we know we’ve been saying this all week, but here is the link to donate once more.
