At first, the circuit was planned to hold NASCAR-style races in Japan. Therefore, the track was originally designed to be a 4km high-banked superspeedway, but there was not enough money to complete the project and thus only one of the bankings was ever designed. Mitsubishi Estate Co. invested in the circuit and took the management right on October 1965.
