Latest Gdansk Site Plan showing the main circuit plus ancillary units
AR1.com has more inside information about this project in this exclusive report. SDG and its owner Hans-Jorg Fischer, who has recently successfully setup Moscow Raceway in Russia, and Eurospeedway before that, is involved in the project together with Hermann Tilke. SDG is advising the project initiator, a public funded Gdansk development agency.
The track is about 2.65-miles long and a lot of other motorsports, business and entertainment units are incorporated in the development. It is still in the preliminary planning stages.
The location is great, Gdansk a great polish city along the Baltic sea with a great infrastructure and potential (airport, hotels, restaurants, catchment area, seaside location, traffic infrastructure etc.).
The project looks promising and could become the first state-of-the art polish track. They are calling it “National Motorsport and Recreation Center."
Gdansk enjoys a temperate climate, with mild, cloudy, moderate winters and hot but also mild summers with frequent showers and thunderstorms. Average temperatures range from 39.2 (winter) to 69.8 °F (Summer). In general it is a maritime climate and therefore damp, variable and mild. Mark C. reporting for AR1.com
Could this be the layout?
According to AR1.com sources, Hermann Tilke is designing a new circuit in Gdansk, Poland. Not sure if the image to the right will be the layout, but it was what our sources were able to dig up. It was a layout presented awhile ago.
We hear there will be a press conference on May 12th.
