The Japanese Super Formula Championship is considered the top level of single-seater racing in Japan and regional motorsports in Asia. The series is sanctioned by the Japan Automobile Federation and managed by Japan Race Promotion.

Super Formula is a Japanese open-wheeled racing championship that initially started life as the Japanese Formula 2000 series in 1973. Since then, the championship has evolved into Formula Two, Formula 3000 and its previous guise, Formula Nippon, before becoming Super Formula in 2013.

Racing is closer than most, as all teams currently use the same chassis, supplied by Italian-based company Dallara. Engines for the teams are supplied by either Honda or Toyota, in the form of 2-litre turbocharged units, while tyres are supplied by Yokohama. This closely-matched formula really puts driver talent to the test.
