Japan R2 - Suzuka Circuit, Japan
Suzuka Circuit overview
Suzuka EWC CircuitDesigned as a Honda test track in 1962 by John Hugenholtz, Suzuka is a unique circuit, being one of the very few in the world to have a figure 8 layout. Obviously, due to the danger of an intersecting track, the track doesn't actually intersect with itself; instead, the back straight passes over the front section by means of an overpass. Due to its unique layout, Suzuka is a massive test of rider skill and is easily one of the most difficult racing circuits in the world. Nevertheless, the track is loved by riders and spectators alike for its challenging design and many opportunities for overtaking.
