Origin of Twin Ring Motegi
Twin Ring Motegi opened its doors in 1997, in the town of Motegi in eastern Tochigi prefecture. Set on hills linked to the Hakko mountain chain, Twin Ring Motegi is surrounded by forest, with the pure water of the Nakagawa river, originating on Mt. Nasu.
"Twin Ring" was coined by joining the English word "twin" and the German word "ring." The name indicates the two racing courses: Super Speedway, an American-style oval course, and Road Course, a European layout. "Twin" is also intended to imply the merging of two objects, the harmony of man with nature, the meeting and joining of people. Although "ring" in German means a ring or a circle, that meaning was broadened to include a group of people, a circle of excitement and affinity. We want to make that circle of affinity and excitement even larger. That's why we call this place "Twin Ring Motegi."
Twin Ring Motegi has a variety of racing courses. One major attraction is watching the world's top races, such as MotoGP, and feeling the speed and excitement with the whole body.
