New race track intro – Slovakia Ring

slovakia ring

Quietly without too much fanfare a new race track came to life in the middle of Europe. No, this track does not have any ambitions to host F1 races but looks like an interesting facility. Here is a brief intro. This is how the official track website describes the venue:

Being a top-notch training facility for motorists, Slovakia Ring is now bringing a unique chance for you to improve your driving skills, try a fast ride, exercise your driving techniques or just enjoy the freedom of sitting behind the wheel. Motorcycle enthusiasts as well as the owners of high performance automobiles will certainly appreciate the unique space for trying the limits of their “swift horses” and an exceptional opportunity to experience the feelings of professionals who run real races. On the other hand, racing teams and agencies have been given an ideal space for conducting racing events of outstanding quality in every aspect.

I found a video of (rather slow :-) ) onboard lap of the track (the longest version of the track):

Here are the track specifications:

Length of race track: 5,922 m
Width of race track: 12 m
Length of race homestraight: 900 m
Width of race homestraight: 20 m
Length of acceleration testing track: 1,144 m
Width of acceleration testing track: 20 m

      I am not that sure there is a golf course :-) There are some nearby I believe but this is just a race track. It does look tricky though.
