Motegi

Japanese Grand Prix
The Twin Ring Motegi track is truly unique. Carved out of seven mountaintops in an area of outstanding natural beauty, it incorporates not only a massive banked oval car track, but also several other circuits and combinations further down the hill, used for everything from driver training to kart racing.

The track itself is a curious combination. Much of the layout comprises somewhat sterile U-turns and short drag-strip straights, but it is enlivened by some difficult faster combinations out on the back loop, after the first underpass beneath the banked oval.
