A historic track

A lot of history surrounds Suzuka. From F1 to countless GT races, this track has seen it all. But what makes the circuit a mainstay in the world of motorsports?

Its unique shape, and the mixture of high-speed passages paired with short tight corners make it interesting to watch. Suzuka requires a whole heap of racing knowledge to get it spot on. Some corners like ‘Spoon’ are so quirky that they feel different every time you take them. Another aspect is the differences in height the track has over a whole lap. Especially during the famous 130 R passage, the change in elevation makes for a real challenge.

If you follow Jardier’s steps, you might find the same kind of love that racers from across the globe have for Suzuka.
