Expanded Motegi package launched!
2017 will be our biggest Motegi MotoGP ever! We are bringing more staff, more transport and - since we have been essentially sold out for weeks - more hotel hotel rooms! We have moved hotels to get a large capacity, our new modern 4* hotel in Tsukuba City will be a great base for the Japanese MotoGP!
Motegi Friday guest speaker to be MotoGP guru Manuel Pecino
For our regulars who know Manuel, you will undoubtedly have hundreds of more questions for him, and will be delighted to followup on his previous insights and gossip. For those of you who do not know him, be prepared to spend many hours with one of the most incisive 30+ year veterans of MotoGP! You will have the opportunity to discuss any issue you care to raise over a prolonged dinner, and likely further drinks! Never anything but fascinating!
The Motegi circuit is set in a huge parkland area in a very rural part of Japan. The park features the Honda Museum, where exhibits such as the original CBR 1000 and bikes ridden by Hailwood and other legends will be sure to recall fond days of youth! There is a high-tech exhibition hall, a nature exhibit/trail, a kiddies pocketbike track, tons of shops, concessions, and more on the weekend.
You can get around the track to see the action from several viewing points. Recommend to head over to the Z 90 degree corner for some hard braking after the downhill straight into the right angle turn. The final corners - under the overpass and into the final chicane, are where the race is often decided.
Japan can be an intimidating place, especially if you have never been there. It is a VERY difficult race to manage on your own -- there are no hotels nearby, and the local taxi drivers as a rule speak no English.
Our Special package is bed and breakfast - and includes dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. Friday night is our Opening Reception with a traditional Japanese meal near our hotel (absolutely delicious!) with star "insider" speaker; Saturday we visit a local traditional Japanese restaurant; Sunday is our winding down dinner in town (shared cost), and a few visits to the local pubs is not unknown!
Motegi is a truly special event, with great camaraderie developing amongst the few people who make it. Plan this if you can, you will have a weekend to remember!
