Chiba 2019: Round of 14 Preview

The countdown has begun for the World Championship decider. Here’s how they line up for the Round of 14…

Muroya on the other hand has his home race and the World Championship to think of. This one could go either way, it all depends on who keeps their feet on the ground.
