Fuji International Speedway

Since 1982 endurance racing has a rich history at Fuji Speedway when a round of the Sports Car World Championship was contested. Located at the foot of the world famous Mount Fuji, Fuji Speedway is a fast track, which was rebuilt in 2005. It hosted the first Japanese round of the World Endurance Championship in October 2012 with 40,000 fans travelling to see Toyota win on home soil and it has been a firm favourite since then.
