J SPORTS will increase its commitment to the FIA World Touring Car Championship by broadcasting qualifying and the Manufacturers Against the Clock team trial live from WTCC JVCKENWOOD Race of Japan, on Sunday 29 October.
J SPORTS is already broadcasting all 20 WTCC races live this season and will also show the opening race and main race as they happen from Twin Ring Motegi on J SPORTS 3.
J SPORTS is adding live coverage of qualifying and WTCC MAC3 for its home event.
“J SPORTS is the channel for motorsport in Japan and has done a really good job in making the WTCC even more popular with its live coverage of the races this season,” Honda team driver Ryo Michigami said.
