Introduction

Zhuhai International Circuit, the first permanent motor racing circuit in China, was completed in November 1996, just in time to host the first International Race on this Formula 1 standard circuit in China’s history.

With the approval of the FIA (FEDERATION INTERNATIONALE DE L'AUTOMOBILE) the 4.3 km long Formula 1 standard Zhuhai International Circuit has since become the Heart of Motor Sport in Asia.

The main design consultant for Zhuhai International Circuit was Chinatrack Consultant Ltd., a consortium that includes Kinhill Engineering (now known as Halliburton KBR) in Australia, who designed and acted as project management for the Adelaide F1 Circuit. In 1999, circuit upgrading designed by renowned F1 circuit designer Tilke GmbH was carried out. Zhuhai International Circuit offers challenging corners for spectacular overtaking maneuvers to world class drivers: the clockwise direction circuit has 4 left turns, 10 right turns, 2 straights of 900m and 500m each. The design of ZIC incorporates the latest in regulations and specifications for both Formula 1 and 500cc Motorcycle Grand Prix racing approved by both the FIA and the FIM. The 900 metre long main straight, as well as another straight in excess of 500 metres followed by sweeping corners offer a top speed of over 300 kph. Track width: 12 m and 14 m for the pit straight.
