Circuit

Adria - ITALY
08/09/2007

Adria circuit

Modern and unusual with its innovative covered paddock, Adria is situated in the heart of a region that has long been associated with rallying: the Veneto. It is the most recent and most technically demanding of Italian circuits. It is a fast track and not overly long at 2.702 kilometres. Adria is a tough track to memorise due to the slight but decisive differences between one curve and another. The circuit was designed for overtaking. Slow curves of varying degrees are set at the end of each straight and drivers have to be alert to attacks launched on the inside.

The progression along the circuit is constant as there are no chicanes or series of identical curves to slow artificially lap times. A little like Magny Cours, Adria presents a tough test through a carefully planned layout. Having the right racing line is critical at Adria and exiting each curve at the right speed to be aggressive on the straights is essential in setting a fast lap. Adria, as well as hosting national and international events, is also highly esteemed by the teams and motoring companies as a good test bench for their cars.
