Classified by the governing body for world motorsport, FIA: Grade 1 (highest). Classified by the governing body for world motorcycling, FIM: Grade A (highest).
The classification material was produced by Apex Circuit Design Ltd in co-operation with Kymi Ring Oy. The race tracks designed by Apex are accredited by FIA, FIM and CIK (the world governing body for karting). The classification was approved in September 2014.
The track’s master plan was prepared with FIA funding under the Facility Improvement Programme 2010.
The chief design organisation is Apex Circuit Design Ltd from England based on well-developed national plans. Apex has long experience in designing international motor racing circuits. Website: http://apexcircuitdesign.co.uk/
The tracks, buildings and equipment will be equipped to international standards and the safety classification will also be at a level that allows the organisation of international races. Examples of competitions being targeted are the different sports of the main track
The track design aims to meet driver requirements irrespective of experience and class, and to offer a safe environment in which to drive cars and ride motorcycles.
The track which will be negotiated in a clockwise direction will consist of 18 bends, 9 to the right and 9 to the left, each different in terms of speed and radius (some combining different radii), also offering smooth and exciting driving stretches with four discernible key overtaking points.
One aim of the design has been to take advantage of the shape of the undulating terrain; the circuit provides an 20-meters difference in height between the highest and lowest points. The camber of the bends varies at different points of the track with a maximum of 10% on three bends increasing mechanical grip for adjacent driving and overtaking possibility.
The pit building consists of three floors: ground, middle and roof terrace.
The intention is to organise racing driving training on the complex in racing cars. A motorsport training centre will also be located at the track.
