Fuji Speedway

× How was it?

Fuji Speedway is a race circuit in Shizuoka Prefecture at the foot of Mount Fuji and one of the two venues, which staged the Formula One Japanese Grand Prix in recent years. The other is the Suzuka Circuit south of Nagoya.

The first formula one race in Japan took place in 1976 at the Fuji Speedway. From 1987, the Japan Grand Prix was held annually at the Suzuka Circuit until Fuji Speedway played host again twice in 2007 and 2008. The race returned to Suzuka in 2009.
