Scheduled to be held at Fuji Speedway on September 11 and 12, the race has been cancelled due to serious damage in the locality of Town of Oyama by a typhoon.

The effects of the typhoon included mudslides and other damage within the grounds of Fuji Speedway, and although reconstruction work is under way, there has also been severe damage to roads in the vicinity of the Speedway. It has become evident that attempting to hold the race as scheduled under such conditions would not only be an imposition on the spectators attempting to come to the race, it could also seriously hinder the work of the local authorities and citizens to recover quickly from the typhoon damage. As such, the Oyama Town authorities has made a request to cancel the race.
