a Mitsubushi… why dont they enter those in too? because19th July 2012, 14:05 at 2:05 pm #187352
The is an Autograph session at suzuka on the thursday. Usually about 2pm in front of the grandstand. Additionally drivers usually enter the track via the tunnel which is behind the main grandstand.
There is a gate there which behind is a tunnel which leads under the main straight and pops up on the other side at the pits.
You will see drivers coming and going there usually early morning and very late in the arvo. You will catch some austograghs :) if you want3rd July 2012, 14:05 at 2:05 pm #182329

I also went to Shanghai last year, man I enjoyed Suzuka so much more………….. Just a nicer place to visit and a real historic track …………..26th April 2012, 12:48 at 12:48 pm #187348
With FP1 & 2 u sit anywhere u want except main frandstand, although on past occassions I have sat there in fp1&2……… If fp1 starts at 10am leave nagoya by 830am
At the behind of the main straiht grandstand, below the Ferris Wheel, there is a pedestrian tunnel that goes under the track and comes out at the end of the S’s, u can sit around there, food shops, toilets, etc, although no shade…..
I had a look at the spot there u said u are sitting over the weekend, im pretty sure its concrete steps25th April 2012, 14:52 at 2:52 pm #187346
from memory as of 2010 there are some concrete slab stairs, that are a pretty simple mini grandstand. I wouldnt worry if its grass, if its not suitable u can pretty much sit wherever u want, i mean, move up to the concrete section….. Im pretty sure i will be going and taking my daughter, so will respond later with my Suzuka F1 tips :) best track of the season in my opinion and the whole japanese experience will be awesome for u :)22nd April 2012, 2:59 at 2:59 am #199933

BRAWN GP, so simple, so sweet, white with yellow wheel inserts, limited decals, man i love that car…… trying to buy a Jenson Button 1/18 Die Cast model on ebay bloody expensive…11th March 2012, 6:45 at 6:45 am #180662
Hi JON, fellow Aussie, mate having also been to the race a few times, i personally really like the back straight just before the hairpin, upper tier, u have an awesome view of the track & can really appreciate the speed coming into that hairpin then hard braking, you can also see over the back to another section of track ( think Simoncelli crash corner r.i.p. ) and the cars come through there really fast..
From a tickets point of view that back straight is top value…. Oh and also its nice and shady ( covered ) so u wont get too cooked… Enjoy =)7th March 2012, 12:23 at 12:23 pm #187344
nice. once u pass the entrance gates, walk to the rear of the main straight grandstand, turn right & you will walk up past the casio triangle, keep walking, prob about 7 mins, its a nice spot, right on the 130R, super high speed part of the track, you should also be able to see cars doing the right hander before they pass under the bridge, most the mechandise stalls etc are behind the main straight grandstand, there will also be some displays, last year they had a cool bridgestone used f1 tyre display, *tip buy your food early on race day, the line ups are intense. Enjoy dude!7th March 2012, 12:13 at 12:13 pm #194815
