@Wade – you can now purchase a SIM Card at Nagoya airport in the arrivals area. It’s not that cheap, but it’s available. http://www.centrair.jp/en/whatsnew/sim_vendor.html
There is no English commentary at the track – it’s all in Japanese, both over the PA and via the headsets you can rent.
Does anyone know about the ticket situation for “early bird” access to Suzuka? I received the e-mail from FOM that tickets were now available, but I only am seeing the family seating + paddock club sections being available, nothing for the general grandstands.
Nagoya is closer, but you can stay in Osaka as well. There are trains going from both cities to Suzuka on the GP weekend. You must reserve the train ticket ahead of time.
