There are reasons to make Japanese Grand Prix very special among other MotoGP series. This is one of the oldest and longest running series with first race in 1963 when it was held in Suzuka Circuit. The grand prix moved to Motegi Twin Ring circuit since 2004 and since then becomes a permanent in MotoGP calendar.

Another reason is the fact this is the home race for Japanese manufacturers: Honda, Suzuki, and Yamaha, which also the powerhouses of MotoGP. The three manufacturers and the team using the bikes are always fighting hard to protect the Japanese pride in the race. The same pride is also the reason why Japanese riders will push themselves over the edge to win. Not only the regular rosters, Japanese wildcard riders are also highly motivated to protect the Japanese pride. This pride was damaged last year when Dovizioso from Ducati Team won the MotoGP class race. This year, we can except Japanese manufacturers and riders to strike back. 

Motul Grand Prix of Japan is the current official name of the series. In 2018 Season, it is the 16th series and scheduled at October, 21st.
