It was designed to the highest international standards and is capable of hosting world championship races under the CIK-FIA. The Circuit made motorsport history in 2012 when it became the first karting track anywhere across the globe to host a world championship-level event at night thanks to the high-specification floodlight system. The challenging track in this colorful kingdom with its unique historical heritage is 1,414 km long and features 14 turns which will give the opportunity to see thrilling action on the track when the best Rotax drivers will fight for the podium in 2021.
