Fuji Speedway was held in 2007 and 2008 and Japan Grand Prix of F1 World Championships, but we have officially announced that we will stop holding the Japanese Grand Prix after 2010. This seems to be due to the deterioration of the business environment due to the global economic downturn from October 2008, and the circumstances that economic recovery is difficult to achieve. In the future, domestic races such as Formula Nippon and SUPER GT will be aggressively raised That's right.

It seems that the name "Japan Grand Prix" started from the place given to the remodeled commercial car race in 1963, after that it was done with a sports car at the Fuji Speedway, but from 1971 it started the formula car It was used race. The F1 World Championship Series was held for the first time in 1976, but the accident happened when the audience died at the Japanese Grand Prix in the following year, the Japanese Grand Prix was not held.

After that, in the 1980s Honda entered the F1 world championships and the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka Circuit under Honda umbrella began to be held from 1987. Since the schedule was organized in the final stage of the series at Suzuka, a number of exciting races were done as important points of the championship battle. However, in 2005 the Fuji Speedway was a modern circuit with a major renovation, he gave a name to the Japanese Grand Prix to host the Grand Prix, and Suzuka's aging became a problem, so it was held again at Fuji Speedway from 2007 It was decided.

The 2007 F1 Japan Grand Prix held at Fuji Speedway for the first time in 30 years was unfortunately hit by rainA number of troubles occurred. I got criticism from many motor sports fans. At the time of holding in 2008, reflections at this time are utilized, and it seems that the number of spectators has exceeded 100,000 people in three days.

It is held at Suzuka Circuit in 2009, and it was supposed to be held alternately between Fuji and Suzuka after 2010, but it seems that this time it was withdrawn from the economic downturn.
