Let’s start things off in the north of Britain at the Scottish City of Edinburgh and work our way towards the capital. One of our favourite circuits of the current F1 calendar is Monaco. It’s an incredible sight to see Formula One cars blitz through an old and historic city, so this would be our version of that.
Introducing the Old Town Circuit. 4.5 miles and 26 corners that takes you through Edinburgh’s Old Town district, where we’d love to see the Start/Finish straight. What an awesome spectacle that would be!
The circuit immediately tests drivers to their limit with a complex inner-city Sector 1 before zooming past Edinburgh Castle and unleashing them once more down the back straight of Holyrood Road. Sector 3 comprises of a tight chicane at turns 18-19 that then sweeps past the Palace of Holyroodhouse before a tight hairpin at turn 22.
The circuit then sweeps through to another tough hairpin at turn 25 before heading back to the Queen’s Street Start/Finish straight, where the circuit takes you past the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
