Japanese Grand Prix
The Suzuka circuit has hosted the F1 Grand Prix since 1987, sharing the event with the Fuji Speedway circuit. It was designed by John Hugenholtz and built in 1963, primarily as a test track for Honda.
At nearly 6 km in length it is one of the longest tracks on the international calendar, and considered one of the most difficult racing circuits in the world. It has a good variety of corners, while the sweeping, fast curves of the return section produce high G forces. There are many overtaking opportunities.
Japanese crowds are amongst the most enthusiastic in the world, and facilities and organisation are first-rate.
