The inaugural Japanese Grand Prix was held at the Fuji Speedway in 1976: remaining at the circuit the following year before the race was removed from the Formula One calendar. It returned in 1987 at Suzuka, which hosted the Grand Prix exclusively for 20 years and gained a reputation as one of the most challenging circuits in Formula One. The race moved back to the newly redesigned Fuji Speedway for the 2007 and 2008 seasons before returning to Suzuka in 2009, where it has remained ever since.
