The Japanese V-Prix is a Formula Virtual race held annually in Japan. The first V-Prix in 2013 was held at the Suzuka Circuit but for the second race in 2014 the race has relocated to Fuji.

The first ever race at Suzuka was won by Will Hoskins for Franklin F1 but was marred by a series of major accidents at the pitlane entry, one even involving championship contender Jean Mattson. As a result the race was moved to Fuji for the following year. This has been won twice by Adrien Simon (2014 and 2016) and Klaas van Snelheid (2017 - the Dutchman's first ever victory - and 2018), and once by Tumo Kinnumen (2015).
