4. 8-Hours Of Suzuka Endurance Race

8 Hours of Suzuka

When it comes to motorcycle endurance racing, Suzuka is the one to see. Sure there are longer races, but the manufacturers pull out all the stops to win at Suzuka. Whether it’s drafting the best riders from World Superbikes or MotoGP for one-off appearances, or paying extra attention to bike preparation beforehand, winning at Suzuka holds significant value.

It’s not just the manufacturers and teams who hold the race in high regard — the fans do too. There’s a buzz around the track wherever you go as everyone, even little kids, are excited about the race. Maybe the youngin’s are just amped to ride the ferris wheel, but whatever it is, that energy is infectious and it’s hard not to get caught up in the spectacle.

  • Isle of Man, by a mile.

    • Oslo Norway

      Good over all list too…Man, the TV thing just doesn’t do a mile track justice. Hockey and dirt track miles seem to suffer this fate. A mile race on the dirt in person is a must see deal…

        Agree with the hockey part.Maybe you’re right about the dirt track part too,wouldn’t rule it out…

    If they were still doing Spa franchorchamps on motoGP,I’d still place it second to IoM.But it would have been a great second:)

    Great list

    Edit:Should be needless to say,but check out TT3D:closer to the edge.It’s documovie from IoM which comes also not 3D 😀

    I was hoping #1 would be the Isle of Man! I’m going to make it over soon and bring a bike. They say you can ride the course. The Videos are Unreal!

      Have fun! Yes, there should be opportunities to ride the course. Quite jealous. I’d love to go back.

      If you go there,I would recommend riding around the track very early in the morning (around 5am) rather than mad sunday.Do mad sunday,but be careful then as there are alot of nutters there then.
