TOKACHI INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY
Not to be confused with Tokachi (Mitsubishi) - Tokachi (TBK)
Description Circuit opened in October 1992. First laps were made by Raphanel e Kageyama who were driving an official Toyota and Nissan Group C respectively. Both Toyota and Nissan paid some money for building the track. First important expected race should have been a Group C race, on July 11th 1993. I don’t know if this event was really raced.
