Track of The Month – October 2021
Istanbul Park – Turkey
The Race Centre’s Track of the Month for October 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 2021 F1 cars are expected to be taking this bend flat-out!
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 in the Red Bull Simulator with Mark Webber!
We hope you enjoy this fantastic circuit and the cars we have chosen!
