2010 Japanese Grand Prix under threat
Reports from Japan today claim that Toyota is considering axing next year’s Japanese Grand Prix scheduled to take place at Fuji Speedway.
The circuit, owned by the Japanese car giant, is said to be reviewing its plans to host
the Grand Prix as the global recession continues to bite deeply into revenues of the major car makers.
The French AFP news agency claims that Toyota has neither confirmed nor denied the news first reported by Mainichi Shimbun.
Fuji Speedway hosted the Japanese Grand Prix in 2007 and 2008 with the race moving back to the Honda-owned Suzuka circuit this year. Toyota posted its first ever loss earlier this year.
