Video lap of the Valencia F1 street circuit

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

The new Valencia F1 street track was used for the first time for a race meeting last weekend. Here’s a video showing a lap of the new Circuito Urbano Valencia onboard a GT car:

The lap begins with the tight left before the start/finish straight. See below for more videos of the track and a map of the circuit

The videos confirm an impression of a generally quick street course with decent amounts of run-off for such a confined space.

The long straight into the tight right/left/right bend looks like being the most likely spot for overtaking. It looks quite narrow in places though.

You can see an earlier 3D rendered lap of the track here.

  1. I agree with marathonman, it would look better with armco instead of concrete. The circuit looks okay, although newly laid tarmac which is not used by ordinary traffic and run-off areas sort of defeats the object of a street circuit. Dissapointed but excited, I hope Singapore will be better.
