Coventry MotoFest 2015
The 1.5 mile long circuit will take in a section of the ring road beginning just before the slip road on Junction 6, before heading all the way down to Junction 4 and then returning back to finish at Junction 6.
The circuit’s official start line will begin at the slip road just before Junction 6, setting off into the new Friargate tunnel.
Continuing on they will negotiate chicanes before heading under Junction 5 toward the London Road before looping back on themselves heading back toward Junction 5 – again negotiating chicanes before taking the finish line just before the new Friargate tunnel back at Junction 6.
A paddock is being created on the ring road itself underneath Junction 8 at Holyhead Road, with a ‘turn around’ created by city engineers in the central reservation.
The track will feature a series of chicanes and crash barriers, marshal points and will be dotted with various viewing areas and spectator zones along the route.
Darren Langeveld, Motofest Race Director said: “We are very excited to unveil the new ring road sprint circuit, which will provide one of the most distinctive and one-off race circuits you will see this year.
“It will provide the drivers taking part with a unique opportunity to run their cars in a urban setting and all those we have spoken to are really looking forward to it.
“For those attending Motofest it represents a fantastic opportunity to see some world class race cars away from the traditional circuits and get close-up to the action.”
