As much as we hate to be the bearer of bad news, it seems like we would have to wait a bit longer to see Super GT cars racing here as Sepang has just been dropped off from the 2021 calendar. This unlucky news is shared with Buriram as the race series will be racing entirely in Japan for the second year in a row.
Super GT was set to return to Sepang International Circuit after a six-year absence. The race was going to be a milestone for Super GT as it was going to be their first ever night race. Also set to make their debut was a lineup of an-all Malaysian team where Jazeman Jaafar was going to partner Datuk Adrian D'Silva in a Porsche GT3R to compete in the GT300 category.
Super GT first came to Malaysia in 2000 as an exhibition race where it was still known as the All-Japan GT Championship back then. The Sepang leg remained as the only round held outside Japan until 2013, where it was then dropped off in favor of the newly-constructed Buriram circuit in Thailand.
