2012 Round 15: Japanese Grand Prix

Hi F1 Fans,

I'm sure we have all been keeping the drama about who's going where and whether Lewis' departure was due to the struggling McLaren, but now it's time to put that aside. Saving the drama for a later date, we can now look forward to our first night event in what seems like a lifetime. That's right for Round 15 we are heading to land of Nintendo and of course the famous 130R corner! Suzuka Circuit is up next and that means we'll be partying all night long as we enjoy the 2012 Japanese Grand Prix.

You don't have to take my word for it so I'll leave it to Rémi Taffin, Head of Renault Sport F1 Track Operations,

"The power sensitivity at Suzuka is not higher than say Canada or Valencia, but the variety of corners over the lap requires some careful preparation. The first half of the circuit, from the First Curve to Spoon Curve, is flowing so the engine needs to be responsive and smooth throughout the power curve. The second half of the track, from the exit of Spoon to the end of the pit straight, is all about outright power as 90% of this section is spent at full throttle."

So if you're in the city and are looking to watch the race be sure to check us out. We will be hosting the race from start to finish and in our opinion there's no better way to close out the evening.

Don't forget the pre-race show starts at 1:30AM.

We'll see you there!

      Speed TV tends to re-runs but I think they're finished for the Japanese GP.

      If you have a proxy you can use the BBC iPlayer, otherwise in the US you're left with downloading through a torrent to my knowledge (and that's your choice if that is ok).

    Good people (not including the rude barman - the other one was great) but a little more noisy than the breakfast events (probably due to more hooch consumed :) ) which made it tough to hear some of the commentary
