| 2014 VGPC Japanese Grand Prix
The 2014 VGPC Japanese Grand Prix was a Virtual Grand Prix Championship race that was held at the Fuji Speedway in Fuji, Oyama, Japan on 25 November 2014. The race was contested over 70 laps and was the fifteenth round of the 2014 F1F Virtual Grand Prix Championship. It will be the second Japanese Grand Prix but the first to be held at Fuji after the 2013 race took place at Suzuka.
Enrique Ruiz took pole position for the race, his first ever in the series, and also claimed the fastest lap during the race, but retired with a gearbox problem from second place with six laps to go. Having started second Adrien Simon won the race ahead of Nikolai Milkovich and Marcus Thunder - who claimed his first ever podium for Downton.
With Liverpool failing to achieve a 1-2 - Karl Beckenbauer could only recover to fifth after starting a lowly 15th - and Will Hoskins taking 2 points for 9th, Franklin re-claimed the Constructor's Championship.
Kiara Thunder will make her debut in a Formula Virtual car, driving for Downton in place of her brother Marcus Thunder in the practice session. Will Taylor will like-wise make his debut in an FV car, taking Keith Boston's place at Westwood.
