We are THE MotoGP No.1 specialists making your weekend an unforgettable experience

We launch Motegi 2018!

Motegi is an event that consistently grows year on year. It is always an eye-opening event, thrilling racing and often a championship decider; it is also the most exotic race of the year. Of course we make it all simple and provide to you the best the Japanese MotoGP has to offer!

Event description

This was the deciding championship event for 2008 when Rossi, against all rumours, did not hold back to stay on the bike but pulled out all the moves and manage to claim the title with an outright win. Those of you there will remember the show put on following the finish line and the atmosphere in the paddock. It was electric!!!

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 (cool!) and 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 pop 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.

We take the stress out of the weekend by taking care of you every moment. Generally you will fly into Tokyo and take the bullet train up to our base of Utsumomiya. You can either take the 15 mins walk straight up the high street or the very short taxi ride to the hotel. Our package is bed and breakfast - and includes dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. Friday night is our Opening Reception with a traditional Japanese meal in 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!

If you want to extend the break, visit Tokyo where we can set you up in a nice 4* hotel and have options of Day Tours and tours to Mt. Fuji. A great way to explore the city and country.

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.

Go
VIP Village if you can -- it is about the best value VIP of the season with open Paddock access, pit lane walks, service road tours and generally great access. Always sells out by January unfortunately. Alternatively opt for a MotoGP Team Experience - this gives you the top experience of the event as a team guest and you have access to their shelter and lunch facilities.

There is a pretty good viewing area in a field open only to paddock customers.

For tickets you get the most view from the main stands V2-6 : the natural valley the track lies in gives you panoramic sights (but you will want binoculars).

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. You can also sit insider this corner at "G" (limited TV view if any)

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!) Alternatively upgrade this experience with our "Team Experience" in either Moto2 or MotoGP and our guides will show you around some of the garages (and the service road for MotoGP)

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. VIPs get free paddock access! One of the most unique racing facilities in the world: not just a circuit but virtually a theme park & the 'home of Honda'.
