Suzuka hosted the “Motorsport Fans Appreciation Day” this weekend. A number of displays and exciting events were on hand for the fans, including special Super Taikyu track events. Nova Engineering, Team Nova, entered their #8 Audi R8 LMS ultra.

The Super Taikyu hosted three events at Suzuka this Weekend, two demonstration races and one test session. The test session got underway early on Saturday morning. Saturday's proceedings were concluded with a nighttime demonstration race, with the twenty-car strong grid taking part. The second demonstration race was held on Sunday morning.

Team Nova’s #8 Audi R8 LMS ultra was driven by Seiji Ara, who also drove the car during the 2013 Super Taikyu season.

The Super Taikyu also revealed the provisional 2014 season entry list this weekend. So far the list includes one Audi, the Audi R8 LMS ultra of K's Frontier.
