The Race Centre’s Track of the Month for October is the Istanbul Park Circuit in Turkey.
Istanbul Park is a 3.3-mile circuit constructed in 2005. This fantastic circuit has been used for Formula 1, GP2, and MotoGP, to name a few big events.
The most notable feature of this stunning circuit is the legendary quad-apex turn 8, quite a challenge for the drivers to keep the speed up back in 2005 – 2011, however, the 2021 F1 cars are expected to be taking this bend flat-out!
Come to The Race Centre this month to see if you are up to the challenge of Istanbul Park.
Take a look below for a flying lap of Istanbul Park in the Red Bull Simulator with Mark Webber!
We hope you enjoy this fantastic circuit and the cars we have chosen!

In short, Competition Terms and Conditions
As a rule. all potential prize winning laps must be verified by a TRC staff member. In all cases, for a lap to be legal, your vehicle must have two or more wheels inside or touching the white lines at all times. Furthermore, vehicles must be running all standard TRC settings for the month. By the way, free entry to First Monday is for the next event and is non transferable. Also, multiple Class wins within a month will result in prizes for the highest win only. Ordinarily, lower “wins” will be passed to the next highest competitors. Consequently, TRC Staff are not eligible to win prizes. Consequently, any winning positions held by staff will defer to the next highest driver. Lastly, cash prizes available at the following First Monday event or within a max of 30 days of competition end.
