Built by famous racing circuit designer Hermann Tilke, Istanbul Park Circuit has over 14 corners including the fast sweeping turn 8, nicknamed ‘Diabolica’. Reminiscent of one of the multi-apex sections of the old Nürburgring, and sometimes compared to such legendary corners as Eau Rouge (Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps) and 130R (Suzuka Circuit), Istanbul Park Circuit offers the perfect conditions for experiencing the all-new BMW M3 and BMW M4 on the track.
A frequent stop for Formula 1, Istanbul Park Circuit has even been referred to ‘the best race track in the world’ by Formula 1 Boss Bernie Ecclestone.
