2009 FORMULA 1 TURKISH GRAND PRIX
05 - 07 June 2009, Istanbul Park Circuit, Istanbul
Located on the edge of one of the world's most exotic cities, Istanbul Park sets new standards in motor racing - for drivers, fans and corporate guests alike. Host of the Turkish Grand Prix since its inception in 2005, the circuit combines one of the Formula One calendar's most challenging layouts, with superb spectator access and unparalleled levels of hospitality.
An unusual feature of the venue is that the lap runs anti-clockwise, making the Turkish Grand Prix one of only two races on the calendar to do so ( Brazil being the other). It possesses a wide variety of corners - including the notorious multi-apex Turn Eight - and while perhaps not as technical as, say, Shanghai, it definitely provides the drivers with real challenge.
The character of the circuit is further enhanced by plenty of gradients - the track is built on four different ground levels. There may be fewer obvious overtaking opportunities than at some other Tilke circuits - it doesn't feature the long straights followed by tight hairpins that characterise the likes of Sepang and Shanghai - but the potential for a driver under pressure to make a mistake here means no shortage of passing.
