The race at the Mount Fuji was started twice behind the safety car but eventually suspended and stopped due to heavy rain and atrocious weather conditions.
Lotus Praga Team would have largely preferred to give the public a reward for coming to support them. Unfortunately an hour before the regular end of the race time it was decided to not re-start the race. Lotus Praga LMP2's race strategy was playing out well at that tiime as they were the only LMP2 car one pitstop ahead of all others.
The Lotus Praga Team is looking forward to the next round in Shanghai and hoping that they can replicate last year's pole position.
