Japanese Grand Prix Suzuka 2009

鈴鹿サーキット

The Japanese Grand Prix takes place at Suzuka Circuit on Sunday with championship leader Jenson Button from Britain hoping to clinch his first ever overall title.

Practice was disrupted by rain on Friday with more bad weather in the Nagoya area forecast (wrongly!) for Saturday, though race day on Sunday should be clear and dry.


Suzuka Street Car National Festival

The 5.8km Suzuka circuit is a classic figure of 8 track with an overpass and has seen some classic races in the past. Suzuka will host the 2010 and 2011 races after Fuji Speedway dropped out of the F1 calendar after hosting the Japanese Grand Prix in 2007 and 2008.

Suzuka hosts other motor sport events and the Suzuka Street Car Festival.

Suzuka is in Mie Prefecture not far from Nagoya city by public transport. Take a Kintetsu or JR train from Nagoya Station or Osaka Station. Shiroko Station has shuttle buses to the track. Alternatively change at Yokkaichi and take an infrequent Ise Tetsudo Line train to Suzuka Circuit Ino. Then a 20 minute walk.
If driving from Nagoya or Tokyo take the Tomei Expressway and exit at the Suzuka IC. From Osaka take the Shin Meishin Expressway and exit at the Kameyama IC.
