Gregg Black will race at this weekend’s 43rd Coca-Cola Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance World Championship third round.

Black was due to take a managerial position for the Yoshimura Suzuki Endurance Racing Team and riders Sylvain Guintoli, Xavier Siméon, and Kazuki Watanabe, but has been drafted in due to Siméon suffering from Covid.

Black will be on track with Guintoli and Watanabe in a pre-Suzuka shakedown test today ahead of opening practice and qualifying.
