Fuji Speedway is a motorsport race track standing in the foothills of Mount Fuji, Japan. It was built in the early 1960s. In the 1980s, Fuji Speedway was used for the FIA World Sportscar Championship and national racing. The circuit hosted the Formula One Japanese Grand Prix in 2007, after an absence of 30 years, replacing the Suzuka Circuit, owned by Honda. After Fuji Speedway hosted the 2008 race, the Japanese Grand Prix returned to Suzuka for the 2009-onward races. Fuji Speedway is known for having one of the longest straights in motorsport tracks with an FIA Grade 1 license. In 2003 the circuit was closed down to accommodate a major reprofiling of the track, using a new design from Hermann Tilke.
