Porsche in Leipzig (DE)

• Track length: 3.7 km/+ 2.2 km

• Track width: 12 m/6.5 m

• Number of corners: 11

Accelerating, braking, cornering, maintaining the racing line. The feeling is astounding, as you will soon find out. In every hundredth of a second. On the FIA-certified on-road circuit which is modelled on famous sections from racetracks around the world: from the first bend, based on the Suzuka S to the very last curve sequence reminiscent of the Suntory Corner. The on-road circuit has now been expanded to include a handling course which includes a 150-metre dynamic driving area and a wet handling section. Take up the challenge on tarmac. Racing fever will grip you as you enter the Karussell, an accurate replica of the legendary banked curve at the Nürburgring, which can also be incorporated into the circuit.


Nürburgring GP & Nordschleife (DE)

• Track length: 25.9 km

• Track width: 10–25 m

• Number of corners: 90

The history-charged Nürburgring consists of 2 racetracks which can be connected to one big circuit or be used independently: the Nürburgring Nordschleife and the Grand Prix Circuit, the latter mainly known for Formula 1 races.

There is a good reason why the Nordschleife is known as the ‘Green Hell’. Built in 1927, this racetrack dates from another era, when mistakes were punished severely. The varied and sometimes sharply undulating layout also features a number of humps and dips. With its large differences in altitude, rapid succession of fast- and medium-paced curves and relatively narrow track, the Nordschleife also calls for precise mastery of the vehicle. This is exactly what makes it a superlative racing venue, guaranteeing maximum motoring pleasure for discerning drivers.

The Grand Prix circuit at the Nürburgring is one of the fastest and safest tracks in the world. Reconstruction at the beginning of the 1980s led to a circuit that offers variety even for experienced racing drivers due to the varying altitude and demanding chicanes. Particular challenges include the hairpin bend after the finishing straight which calls for braking at exactly the right point on entry and careful acceleration on exit. Or a slow 180° bend that leads uphill to a very fast combination of corners.


Nürburgring Nordschleife (DE)

• Track length: 20.8 km

• Track width: 10–12 m

• Number of corners: 73

There is a good reason why the Nordschleife is known as the ‘Green Hell’. Built in 1927, this racetrack dates from another era, when mistakes were punished severely. The varied and sometimes sharply undulating layout also features a number of humps and dips. With its large differences in altitude, rapid succession of fast- and medium-paced curves and relatively narrow track, the Nordschleife also calls for precise mastery of the vehicle. This is exactly what makes it a superlative racing venue, guaranteeing maximum motoring pleasure for discerning drivers.


Hockenheimring (DE)

• Track length: 4.6 km

• Track width: 15 m

• Number of corners: 17

The Hockenheimring is the definition of driving enjoyment: long straight sections, fast bends and large run-off areas make the heartbeat faster and the adrenaline levels rise. Ideal conditions for a demanding and unforgettable driving experience are provided by the hairpin bends after the long parabolic or the narrow sequence of bends in the northern part of the course. Excellent country road conditions are simulated by the narrow bend sections. Since it was built in 1932, the Hockenheimring has seen at least as much development as racing legends.


Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps (BE)

• Track length: 7.0 km

• Track width: 10–14 m

• Number of corners: 20

Spa-Francorchamps is one of the most fascinating racetracks in the world, thanks to its large difference in altitude of some 200 m and the circuit layout. Professional racing drivers love to return to the ‘Ardennes roller coaster’, built in 1921, which is the name they respectfully give to one of the last classical drivers’ circuits. In 1978, the so-called ‘Bus Stop’ chicane was installed and the circuit was shortened to its present length. It is the alternating uphill and downhill sections, the most famous of which is Eau Rouge, that lend this circuit its particular fascination.


Circuit Paul Ricard (FR)

• Track length: 5.8 km

• Track width: 10–12 m

• Number of turns: 15

Designing it took just 10 months, thanks to the expertise of racing drivers Henri Pescarolo and Jean-Pierre Beltoise. It was completed in 1970. And from the very first second, one thing was clear: The Circuit Paul Ricard, located on the Côte d'Azur, set new standards in terms of track layout and safety. Red and white curbs lining blue asphalt strips – its distinctive appearance is not the only thing that makes Le Castellet, as the circuit is often called, stand out. It is also the ideal venue for various motorcycle races and motor sport events such as Formula 1 and the French Grand Prix. The circuit is also highly valued as a practice track for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.  Today, new link sections and chicanes allow for around 180 track configurations. One of the most famous sections: the 1-kilometre Mistral straight followed by the fearsome Signes corner.


Hungaroring (HU)

• Track length: 4.4 km

• Track width: 10 - 14 m

• Number of corners: 14

Situated to the northeast of Budapest, the Hungaroring is one of the safest racetracks in the world thanks to its high technical standards. Covering just under 50 hectares, the stands offer views of around 80 per cent of the circuit, which is also known as the ‘flat plate’ because of its ideal valley location. The course is relatively difficult to learn: featuring 8 right-hand and 6 left-hand bends, the extremely tight and twisty track layout demands courage as well as precise and sophisticated driving manoeuvres, culminating in a high final speed on the 788.9-metre start-finish-straight.


Red Bull Ring (AT)

• Track length: 4.3 km

• Track width: 13 m

• Number of corners: 10

Opened in 1969 as the ‘Österreichring’, the Red Bull Ring demands plenty of driving skills from motorsport enthusiasts. The 10 bends promise thrilling driving pleasure. The differences in altitude and the alternation of long straights and tight curves, which can require braking from over 320 km/h down to about 70 km/h, are particularly demanding. Surrounded by 3 hills, the racetrack provides unique scenery. But for those who take on the challenges of the Red Bull Ring, there is just one thing that really matters: the ideal racing line. A pounding heart is guaranteed.


Autódromo Internacional do Algarve (PT)

• Track length: 4.6 km

• Track width: 14 m

• Number of corners: 16

Opened in 2008, the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve is located in the south of Portugal near the city of Portimão. The 969-metre start-finish straight offers the ideal opportunity to experience the high performance potential of a Porsche. There are 16 bends as well as numerous dips and crests which challenge both vehicle and driver and promise adrenaline-filled and boundless driving pleasure. With good reason is the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve considered one of the most modern and best racetracks in the world.
