There are also three or four sections of the highway where possible overtaking. Turn 1 and 3 seem to be most suitable for this area, and yet it should be noted narrow hairpin at turn 11. This step will definitely give you an impressive spectacle for the fans. Of course, the climate for the track not the most favorable, will surely be bumps, but the road is constructed in the heart of Moscow, and it's worth it."The total length of 2.3 km, and to make it safe in accordance with the requirements of the FIA had to make 1360 concrete blocks weighing 4 tons, more than 4.5 km of fencing metal mesh, brew 55 hatches on the roadway - and it's only 24 days - a period in which all of the necessary installation work.
