Two-time champion Ishiura set for last Super Formula race

More from Author Travis M. Andrews here:

The 39-year-old Toyota driver Ishiura made his debut as Formula Nippon in 2008, and in 2012–13 two years apart he was an occasional fixture in the series.

He joined his current team in 2014, following a period away from the championship that followed his abortion plan to race at Le Mans 24 Hours at Toyota, and earned his first title in the series the following year.

In 2017, Ishira earned her second crown as she defeated future Red Bull Formula 1 driver Pierre Gesli by just half a point after the season finale due to a thunderstorm.

Ishira slipped to 13th in the standings last year when the Super Formula switched to the current SF19 chassis, and when it skipped a race in the 2020 campaign, finished ninth overall with a solo stage in Okayama.

When was contacted, Ishiura declined to comment directly on his future, but confirmed that he would not participate in the season-rocky test to be held in Fuji next week.

Super Formula Lights driver Sena Sakaguchi has been tried with Ishing in the Test in place of Ishira, although it is not clear if he is involved in the team race next season.

After achieving its first win in the Ocoma Series this year, the show is expected to remain in Tsuobi’s second car of the team.

Ishira’s anticipated departure within the Toyota Super Formula in stable form for the 2021 season may be one of several changes.

Flagship Team TOM’S has at least one vacant spot in its ranks for 2021 with Nick Cassidy, dropping the series to race in Formula E, but it is also unclear whether Kazaki Nakajima is in Toyota’s FIA World Endurance Championship Will return due to its commitments.

The series’ promoter JRP is keen to understand that Toyota finds a way to ensure two former Formula 1 racers are on the grid.

Super Formula Lights champion Ritomo Miyata is set to graduate to the main series in 2021, making two cameo appearances for this year as a substitute for Nakajima when he was unavailable for the Okayama and Sugga races.

Ishira is likely to continue running for Engage’s sister team Serumo in Super GT next year.

Niam Ahmed is set to appear in next week’s Rocky Test Driving, driving for B-Max racing with the Motopark squad, which has been sitting out for most of the 2020 season.
