The Suzuka Circuit, officially known as the Suzuka International Racing Course, is located in Suzuka, Mie Prefecture, Japan. The circuit was opened in September 1962, and it was designed by John Hugenholtz from the Netherlands.
The first Japanese Grand Prix was held in Suzuka back in 1963, but the first official Formula One World Championship race was first held at the Suzuka Circuit in 1987 when Ferrari's Gerhard Berger crossed the finish line first.
Formula 1 races are held on the Grand Prix Circuit, which is 5.807 kilometers (3.608 miles) long and has 18 turns. One of the most famous corners on the track is 130R, which had to be revised after some serious injuries, and now, it is a double-apex section.
The Suzuka International Racing Course is one of the most popular racing tracks, not only in the Formula One calendar but in many other championships, as many series are held at it, such as the Super Formula, Super GT, GT World Challenge Asia, FIM EWC, and many more.
As a very special track, the Suzuka Circuit is only one of two circuits with a FIA Grade 1, which has a "figure eight" layout. But that's not the only special thing about the Suzuka Circuit, as it used to host one of the last races of the Formula One calendar.
That meant that the Japanese Grand Prix, which is raced at the Suzuka Circuit, often decided about World titles, and a total of 13 Formula One World Drivers' Champions were crowned at the circuit over the years.
The circuit can host up to 155,000 people, and currently, it's owned by Honda Motor Co., Ltd and operated by Honda Mobilityland.
