RACE OVERVIEW

Japanese Grand Prix
Suzuka is home to the Japanese Grand Prix, a track built in 1962 as a test track by Honda. They commissioned John "Hans" Hugenholtz; to design the track that is managed by Mobilityland Corporation, a subsidiary of Honda Motor Company. The circuit has a figure eight configuration and is certainly amongst the best circuits in the world.

Viewing is exceptional even with a general admission ticket you can find some great viewing points. The curves two through to seven are wonderful areas to watch from, they are incredibly difficult, drivers who get curve two or three wrong, even just a little off line, have difficulty with the rest of the section.

In seasons 1988 through 1990 Suzuka was the final race in the year and during that time was also the deciding race for the World Champion. The Prost and Senna saga was infamous and the driving very questionable. However space does not allow a blow by blow description but it was far greater than any team mate feud in recent years, like the Hamilton and Rosberg or Webber and Vettel fights.

While the race is not usually a title event it is still worth a trip. The teams and sponsors have the good hotels in Suzuka tied up for years. However Nagoya is a great place to visit, and the 30 or so miles to Suzuka go by quickly enough, which is interesting in itself.
