FUJI INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY CO., LTD. (Fuji Speedway: Hiroaki Kato, President) announced today arrangements for the holding of the 2007 FIA Formula One World Championship (F1) Fuji Television Japanese Grand Prix.

Under the basic theme "Endless Beauty, Unlimited Excitement - F1 Japanese Grand Prix at Fuji Speedway", the event will be organized according to three major policy guidelines: 1) providing services based on advanced safety and high quality, 2) offering a variety of ways to enjoy F1, and 3) contributing to and encouraging participation by the local community.

As a racetrack venue boasting state-of-the-art facilities, Fuji Speedway is committed to making sure the three-day 2007 FIA Formula One World Championship (F1) Fuji Television Japanese Grand Prix is operated as safely as possible; it also intends to create an environment for spectators of unparalleled comfort and convenience.

In addition, Fuji Speedway plans special attractions to make the event enjoyable by as many people as possible and aims for close coordination and cooperation with the host surroundings. Not only out of consideration for the local environment, but also to help ensure trouble-free access for spectators, Fuji Speedway will adopt for the event a "ticket and ride" system that combines an admission ticket with bus transportation.

The number of visitors is expected to be approximately 140,000 on the final (third) day of the event, with a total of 280,000 visitors over the course of the weekend.

It is hoped that holding the event at Fuji Speedway which is located in a rich natural setting with views of the majestic Mount Fuji, will help to popularize motor sports among people from a wide range of backgrounds and will make a contribution to the local community.
