    Background: Jacky Ickx of Belgium and Jochen Mass of West Germany won the seventh race of the Endurance World Championship series in central Japan on October 3. A crowd of about 86,000 enthusiasts watched the contest, held at the 4.3 kilometre (3 mile) circuit, near the foot of Mount Fuji. The West German veteran and his Belgian co-driver covered 1,094 kilometres (680 miles) in the six-hour race at an average speed of 188.5 kilometres per hour (113 miles per hour). Mass, driving the Porsche 956 at the finish, put the Ickx-Mass combination five points clear of Lancia team-mates Riccardo Patrese and Teo Fabi at the top of the World Championship table.
