For spectators

The Super Speedway and the Road Course is sharing the garage and grandstand facilities, otherwise both courses are separated. The circuit also hosts  the Honda Collection Hall with historic Honda racing and production cars and motorcycles, and the Honda Fan Fun Lab with Honda’s next generation technologies such as robotics, fuel-cell vehicles and aviation. Because the grandstand is var from the Road Course, the view for the spectators from here can be very poor. Also, seating outside the grandstand is limited.

Access to Twin Ring Motegi

Access to Twin Ring Motegi tracks is very limited, with only two entry and exit points by a two-lane public road. Also, train connection to the area are extremely limited, and the planned superhighway hasn’t been completed neither. The track capacity, about 65,000, is mainly dictated by the traffic flow, not by actual seating capacity, which is estimated to be nearly 100,000 for road-course events, 80,000 for the oval.
