New Classic Package for 2017

New Classic Package - for 2017 we have published a new Classic package in a 3* hotel. This is a cheaper option for those who want to invest in the circuit experience and enjoy the MotoGP in style.

Event description

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!); 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!
For a cheaper option we have now published a Classic Package with breakfast, Friday Opening Party, Saturday and Sunday Opening Party and a PPT guide.

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!

Motegi is a complicated place, which means our experienced advice will be quite useful for anyone seeking to attend this remarkable event. Remember, even if you are not on our package, we have a team at the circuit and can help you with any issues.

For tickets you get the most view from the main stands A&B : the natural valley the track lies in gives you panoramic sights (but you will want binoculars). A is higher and is also covered, B gets you closer to the track. The C/E grandstands are unreserved, but afford good views on the most exciting corners -- the final chicane. A lot of action here makes this the spot serious Japanese aficionados hang out. Lots of atmosphere, but the TV view is quite far (the binocs again!) They build a temporary stand right on the first corner - this is excellent viewing and ticket holders may also go to B. There is also a stand on the 5th corner - another exciting part of the track. This is closer to the actual track than most stands, and the ticket includes parking, a programme and a box lunch on Sunday, as well as B stand access. One reason for this however is that the stand is quite far away and you will need to take the shuttle bus to get back to the main area.

For our money, the best value is grandstand Z on the infamous 90 degree corner. Here you see the bikes in heavy downhill braking from the longest straight of the circuit. Much action here; and you are quite close to it, with a good TV view.

All grandstand tickets also permit access to the Super Speedway Arena on Sunday. This is the area just alongside the main straight (actually on the speedway tarmac). You can't actually see much track from here, but is great for getting close to the podium and is also where special events occur, such as rider signatures.

Finally, Motegi is one of the few circuits where you can purchase a paddock pass. If you are not going VIP, we strongly recommend this. Passes are valid for one day only, you may buy a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday pass. The paddock gets VERY crowded on Sunday, consider Saturday or even Friday (or get two!) We will give an informal tour of the paddock on each day for those with passes, we of course know many of the Japanese and other riders.

To summarise: Go A if you are not sure (keeps you out of sun and rain - both were issues in 2007!); or Z if you want to be closer the bikes. And in any case get a paddock pass!

TEAM EXPERIENCE: Our special Team Experience packages may be available for this event. This sets you up as a guest of one of our sponsored teams for a day or the weekend, with paddock access, pit visits, rider meetings, and more! Please enquire.

Practical information

Small but perfectly formed makes Motegi one of our favourite events of the year. Awesome facilities and amazingly helpful Japanese made us not want to leave. One of the most unique racing facilities in the world: not just a circuit but virtually a theme park & the 'Home of Honda'.
