The japanese circuit witnessed another thrilling spectacle at the second race of the weekend!

For the sixth year in succession, the Global Series pits the fastest gamers from around the world against one another over five rounds and ten races.

The eighth race of the 2022 Global Series had a similar result to the seventh. No one could touch Adriaan_26 after he got the jump, as he cruised to a dominant second victory of the day by a commanding 2.3s. Just like the earlier encounter, PieroRicciuti55 and Cristianmm17 made up the podium to keep their title hopes alive.

Suzuki ECSTAR’s AndreaSaveri11 made up for a disappointing result in race one by bouncing back to a solid fourth place after a strong late charge. And Trast73 capped an underwhelming day when he lost the championship lead, coming home in fifth.

Trast73 is still in the mix on 80.5 points, and just ahead of AndreaSaveri11, who sits on 80 points. back with Adriaan_26 now third, 4.5 points from the top.  With double points on offer at the final round Cristianmm17 (76 points), PieroRicciuti55 (70 points) and Jack Hammer4658 (61 points) still have a realistic shot at lifting the crown.
