Issuing a statement of sympathy for those affected by the quakes, Championship organisers announced the the event, due to take place on 21/22 May would be postponed until further notice on safety grounds with severe aftershocks still affecting the region, and with all local resources currently required for search and rescue.

Some of the resources of Super GT tyre supplier Yokohama were put to use in assisting the relief effort with one of the company’s tyre transporters making a 1300 km journey packed with supplies including much needed fresh water.
