Fuji Speedway was originalled designed as a banked Super Speedway in 1963, but after money ran out in 1965 only one of the banked corners had been completed and the Mitsubishi took over the circuit and completed it as a road course. Due to a number of accidents on the banking, it was decommissioned and turned into the road course as we know it today. All sorts of racing classes have come here over the years - F1 first raced here in 1976, but Sports Cars, F2, F3, GT, Touring Cars, Drag Racing and even Drifting takes place here at Fuji. Two different layouts of this fast and fabulous road course are even playable in the fabulous driving simulation game, Gran Turismo. Toyota bought the circuit in 2000, and in 2003 commissioned that ubiquitous designer, Herman Tilke to reprofile the track. F1 came back here in 2007 and 2008, but returned to Suzuka in 2009.
