Dromo Circuit Design has revealed the layout for the new MotoGP Hungarian Grand Prix.

The track, which will be built to F1 standard in case the top open wheeled series wants to move there, will be 5.05km in length, and have 15 corners. Of these, 7 will be “complex corners”, which are turns with another element, such as elevation change or bank, added to them. The average speed of the track could be up to 184km/h, with a predicted lap time of about 1:38.7.

There will be two further layouts of the track, a 3.6km outer loop, built to FIA grade 2 spec, and a 1.65km inner loop, built to grade 3. A curious quirk of this track is the pit lane is intended to go under the track itself, similar to Abu Dhabi. The track has four hard braking zones and at least three blind corners over crests. Turn 1 is banked and the final corner falls dramatically in a similar way to Laguna Seca’s Corkscrew and Bathurst’s Dipper.

Dromo says the track is inspired by TT Circuit Assen, Suzuka and Phillip Island.
