Suzuka
Directions
The Suzuka Circuit is not easy to get to. The best way to reach it is by public transport. Most prefer to fly to Nagaya, or the recent opened Kansai International and then transfer to Suzuka using the ¿bullet¿ trains or other public transport. Car hire is available, but traffic is heavy.

Grand Prix racing was first held in Japan in 1976 at the Fuji circuit - but switched to Suzuka a decade later.

Suzuka, though, now has to share the hosting of the Japanese GP with the Fuji track after agreeing a deal to share the race.

Suzuka is unique to the world championship, with a figure of eight configuration. It has a reputation as a tough and technical track.

It has a lengthy lap, which is tough on tyres.

The circuit is well-run with excellent facilities.
