History

During April and May 2003, a group of architectural experts and designers came to the countryside located at the Northeast of Anting Town, Jiading District, Shanghai City with a mission to draw an exciting blueprint for constructing Shanghai International Auto Racetrack in this peaceful and beautiful watery region in Southeast China. When these experts and designers present their perceived F1 auto racetracks to the people, it is believed that this Shanghai International Auto City will be an admirable and monumental project. 

However, many people were skeptical about the possibility of building up Shanghai International Auto Racetrack occupying 2.5km2 within 18 months, furthermore, the Project is built on the soft ground and is very complex and demands stringent specifications. It is the first one of its kind in world architectural history. The constructors faced awesome challenges. Relying on their hard work, dedication, bravery, pioneering and innovative spirit, the constructors overcame the difficulties one after another and achieved victory after victory; they wrote a new and wonderful chapter in promoting the progress and advancing the material and spiritual civilization of Shanghai City.

The circuit’s design and layout provide the drivers with that crucial ingredient – overtaking opportunities. Those that have seen the circuit are convinced that the new Shanghai International Circuit will provide spectators and television viewers alike with a great spectacle and a great race.
