Later than ever the season of V8 Racing League is now ready to start as we're already in october,but the intensity of race should not be affected. Winning the 1st round is always a huge boost to championship chances,but only once in 4 VERL years winner of round 1 became the series champion of that year - that was done 2016 by A.Wiśniewski,who won the 1st round which coincidentally was held in Kyoto. We have now 2 months time to find out if the history can be repeated.
The well known roval course of Kyoto National will be run in reversed direction - this means the "right" direction over oval part and the 1st non-oval turn will also be to the left. Unfortunatelly the curbs still have not been fixed,so everyone has to take care avoiding the buggy curbs in both 1st and last sectors of the course - recently held BF1 race of RTFR XL proved that uncautios racing will result in damage that might inflict handling and ever outcome of own race. Even if the series does not feature mandatory pitstops,it's worth to note that entry and exit of pitlane should be made over apron underneath 1st and last turns!
