Tsukuba Circuit

Everybody that loves Japanese cars and especially tuned Japanese cars knows the Tsukuba Circuit. The circuit is being used every weekend for different kind of events. The most popular events are the Time Attack and open race days.

The fastest car on Tsukuba is the HKS CT230R with a time 0:53:58 driven by Nobuteru Taniguchi. This car has a OEM frame but the rest of the car is made completely out of carbon.

What most people don’t know is that Tsukuba consists of 3 circuits, one called the TC2000 (2070m) and the other TC1000 (1039m). The third track is an oval. The TC2000 track is featured in numerous race games like Gran Turismo and Enthusia. The track is also being used in video’s like Best Motoring and the Hot Version video’s.

If you go to Japan, make sure you pay a visit to the circuit because you will see some of the hottest Japanese cars out there tearing up the track.

A nice view of the track can be seen here on Google Earth.
