The Adria International Raceway is a modern motorsport venue located near the town of Adria in the Italian region of Veneto.

New and modern but not so exciting track

Opened in 2001, Adria International Raceway is one of the newest motorsport spots in Italy. In recent years it has become one of the most important centers when it comes to motorsport activities in Italy. This circuit, built on the very flat ground, is pretty short and tight. The track is not attractive at all, but still requires a good concentration and a certain amount of finesse when it comes to braking. Interestingly, the designers avoided chicanes and smooth curves with an explanation that they didn’t want to kill the taste and entertainment of the racing.

Adria International Raceway layout

The length of the track is 2.702 km, the width is 12 – 14 m. The number of turns is 17 which is pretty large number considering the length. This layout is homologated to meet the FIA standards for the Formula 1 testing sessions. The first modification underwent in 2012 when the racetrack was made more suitable for the motorbikes. The layout could also be divided into two short courses and one of them could be artificially watered to simulate driving in wet conditions.

The first class paddock area

The racetrack can accommodate up to 32 cars in the short races and up to 50 cars in endurance racing. If the track is not the first class, facilities are the real gem. The covered paddock area is a unique facility. In the area of 8.000 square meters, the race transporters can be parked directly behind the pit boxes, providing an air-conditioned area ideal for work and to entertain guests.
