It isn't just Formula 1 that took a leap of faith for 2014, but one of the most hardcore single-seater categories as well. The best-ever sounding V8-based, open cockpit Super Formula (aka Formula Nippon) has turned their priorities to show off some propelled forced induction, going super touring later on.
Not too long ago I wrote about some still remaining open-wheel single seater series that keep using the seemingly antiques of naturally aspirated racing engines. Under there I listed Formula Nippon as one contender. I had a thought about it and remembered reading somewhere about some big overhaul, so I checked it again, and at the very same moment - surprise, surprise - a comment popped up at my post showing the exact video I was watching at the moment.
