2011 Formula 1 Turkish Grand Prix


Location & Date
2011 Formula 1 Turkish Grand Prix

The 2011 Formula 1 Grand Prix auto race will be held in Istanbul on the weekend of May 6 to 8, at Istanbul Park in Tuzla/Kurtköy, 62 km (38 miles) southeast of Istanbul on the Asian side of the Bosphorus near SabihaGökçen Airport.

Istanbul Park
Istanbul Park is a spectacular motor racing facility located just outside the famous Turkish city. Designed by renowned German architect Herman Tilke, the 5.338 kilometre (3.317 mile) circuit celebrated its official opening in August 2005 with the inaugural Turkish Grand Prix.
Since then the track has established itself as a firm favourite with the racing fraternity. Featuring 14 challenging bends and an unusual anti-clockwise layout, it is considered a benchmark test of both driver and car, and the multi-apex Turn Eight has already gone down in Formula One folklore as one of the sport’s toughest corners.
It’s also fast, with two long straights that see the cars reach speeds of over 330 km/h, while its mixture of fast and slow corners means there are plenty of overtaking opportunities. Adding to the circuit’s spectacle are dramatic gradient changes - over the course of a lap, the track’s elevation varies by almost 46 metres.
For spectators too, Istanbul Park’s facilities are incomparable. The track has a seating capacity for more than 130,000 fans, 25,000 of whom can enjoy the action from the track’s main grandstand. There is also parking available for over 12,000 vehicles. Guests of honour are entertained in the two seven-storey VIP towers which dominate the skyline at either end of the paddock. Each tower can accommodate 5,000 people, and both offer excellent views during races - as well as suburb corporate hospitality all year round.
With its state-of-the-art facilities, ground-breaking layout and exotic location, Istanbul Park is one of the world’s most highly-regarded racing circuits - and a must-visit destination for any serious motorsport fan.
