8. Keanu Reeves


Neo … errr … Keanu Reeves was in attendance at Suzuka, and he even suited up to ride a demonstration lap of the circuit aboard his Arch KRGT-1 Motorcycle. Ever the motorcycle racing fan, Reeves was given the honor of waving the green flag to start the race. In TV interviews following his demo lap, he seemed to really appreciate the rich history of the Suzuka circuit and the bravery racers display each weekend. Kudos to you, Keanu, though I don’t know what was more comical: the racers who were star-struck to meet one of Hollywood’s elite, or the pace car leading Reeves around at an agonizingly slow speed, presumably to keep him from doing anything dangerous. Nonetheless, the spectators, racers and Keanu himself seemed to have a good time.
