Track of The Month – November & December 2020

 Istanbul Park – Turkey

The Race Centre’s Track of the Month for November and December is the Istanbul Park Circuit in Turkey.

Istanbul Park is a 3.3-mile circuit constructed in 2005. This fantastic circuit has been used for Formula 1, GP2, and MotoGP, to name a few big events.

The most notable feature of this stunning circuit is the legendary quad-apex turn 8, quite a challenge for the drivers to keep the speed up back in 2005 – 2011, however, the 2020 F1 cars are expected to be taking this bend flat-out!

F1 will be returning here on the 13th – 15th of November for the first time since 2011.

Come to The Race Centre this month to see if you are up to the challenge of Istanbul Park.

Take a look below for a flying lap of Istanbul Park onboard the Redbull of Sebastian Vettel. This lap earned Vettel Pole Position at the 2011 Turkish Grand Prix!

We hope you enjoy this fantastic circuit and the cars we have chosen!
