Circuit Information 2017

Shanghai International Circuit

Shanghai International Circuit

Shanghai, China

Designed by Hermann Tilke, the 5.451km F1 track features his trademark long back straight followed by a hairpin turn. It is wide and smooth with a technically-challenging layout and several elevation changes.

Current-generation F1 cars can easily surpass 300km/h on the long straight between turns 13 and 14. The track layout was inspired by the Chinese character shang (上) the first character in the name of the city Shanghai, meaning “above” or “ascend”.

Fuji International Speedway

Fuji International Speedway

Shizuoka, Japan

Located in the foothills of Mount Fuji, the circuit was built in the early 1960s, and hosted the first Formula 1 race in Japan in 1976. Fuji Speedway is known for having one of the longest straights in motorsport at 1.5km.

The track has 16 turns, and regularly hosts major race meetings such as the FIA WEC, Super GT and Super Formula. The lap record in its current configuration is held by Felipe Massa, who set a time of 1:18.426 in 2008, the last time the circuit hosted the Japanese F1 Grand Prix.

Last year the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia made its Japanese debut at this legendary and picturesque race track, and it immediately became a firm favourite of the drivers, teams and organisation.

Marina Bay Circuit

Marina Bay Circuit

Singapore, Singapore

The Singapore Grand Prix first appeared on the F1 calendar in 2008, and the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia has supported the race ever since. Its inaugural race was the 800th in the history of the F1 world championship, and the first to be held at night under floodlights.

The track, which runs anti-clockwise and currently features 23 turns and several fast straights, passes several local landmarks including the Singapore Flyer, Supreme Court and Parliament. The track also incorporates Esplanade Drive and the Andersen Bridge, which was built in 1910.

A purpose-build section of track includes the start/finish area, pits and paddock. In the latter stages of the lap the track passes beneath one of the spectator grandstands. Minor revisions were made to the circuit in 2009, and in 2013 the Singapore Sling chicane which formed turn ten was replaced with a more conventional left-hander.

Sepang International Circuit

Sepang International Circuit

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The Sepang International Circuit outside Kuala Lumpur was designed by Hermann Tilke and built to host the first Malaysian Grand Prix in 1999. The circuit’s main grandstand faces in opposite directions onto two long straights joined by a hairpin which forms the track’s final corner. The combination of long straights and varied low, medium and high-speed turns requires teams to strike a compromise between high downforce for cornering performance and low drag for straight-line speed.

Conditions at the track are reliably hot and humid, and late afternoon thunderstorms are a common occurrence. In 2003, the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia made its world debut here at the Malaysian F1 Grand Prix.
