Suzuka Reconstruction Nearly Complete
The modification and partial rebuild of the Suzuka Circuit in Japan is set to be completed within two months ahead of Formula One’s return to the figure of eight track.
The circuit, owned by Honda, has been off the F1 calendar since 2006, as Fuji Speedway owned by Toyota has been the chosen track. Discussions about a Pacific GP at Suzuka collapsed almost as soonas they started but it is now back at its spiritual home.
“Full-scale renovation work will soon be completed,” stated Honda, which will host a ‘Start Suzuka Opening Thanks Day F1 Kick Off Party’ on April 12.
Honda have admitted they are fully behind keeping F1 at the track despite leaving F1 as a manufacturer.
