Suzuka 8 Hours: BS12 TwellV to broadcast Suzuka Hours from start to finish

BS12 TwellV, a free broadcasting channel, has announced that it will conduct a live broadcast of the Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race on July 26 from 11am.

In its 38th year, Suzuka 8 Hours, the largest motorcycle endurance race in Japan, has been held every summer at Suzuka Circuit from 1978. The race involves an alternation between two or three riders for each bike to determine which team can run the longest distance within the 8-hour time limit.

The broadcast is scheduled to begin 30mins before the start of the final race (at 11am) and continue until an hour after its finish at 8:30pm.
