Slovakiaring

Slovakia's premier circuit

Slovakia has a burgeoning car manufacturing industry, thanks to the presence of factories for Volkswagen, Peugeot-Citroen and KIA, but until recently had lacked purpose-built test and racing facilities. The Slovakiaring has emerged to meet this need and has become a popular and challenging new addition to the central European motor racing scene.

The circuit is located at Orechová Potôň, a short distance from Bratislava airport. Construction began in 2008, to a design by Austrian architect Hans Roth. At 3.680 miles (5.922 km), the 14 mile main course is among the longest in Europe and features four artificially created elevations, which allied to the circuits high speeds adds greatly to the challenge

A largely triangular outer course surrounds a series of infield bends which can be combined into six separate course variations. The circuit's safety measures have been installed in such a way as to enable running in both directions creating a total of 12 possible variations, though racing has tended to be in the traditional clockwise direction using variation four.

The circuit opened in September 2009 and by 2011 had attracted international racing, in the form of the FIA GT3 European Championships. The event proved a success, although there was concern over cars becoming airborne over the elevated sections, with problems noted particularly at the section between Turns Two and Three. When the circuit was included on the FIA GT1 World Series schedule the following year, a temporary tyre chicane was used just prior to the rise.
