According to reports, there is a strong possibility that in the wake of (Toyota owned) Fuji International Speedway winning the rights to host the 2007 Japan Grand Prix, Suzuka, owned by Honda, could host the Pacific Grand Prix, giving Japan two rounds of the World Championship.

Ltd, has stated that Honda had applied to continue their association with the Japanese GP, but since Fuji now has the contract for the Japanese GP for October, a second race in Spring may be an option.
Therefore, it would appear that the plan is for Suzuka to host a race in the Spring, which would fit together with the Australian and Malaysian races to form an Asian leg of the championship.
