Suzuka

The Suzuka circuit is all killer, no filler and, for that reason, is another firm favourite with both fans and drivers alike.

That's mainly because the foot can remain firmly planted on the throttle for much of this high-speed track. Cars are thrown in to the double right-hander that opens the lap and it never really lets up from there.

The Japanese Grand Prix takes on added importance with it being the home race of engine manufacturers Honda and we will keep on coming to Suzuka until 2021 at the earliest after an extension was agreed in 2018.

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.
