Only a few weeks after its inauguration, Istanbul Park is regarded as one of the world’s most demanding race tracks. The most spectacular circuit has a length of 5.338 kilometres, featuring a mix of high-speed straights and tight cornering combinations. The DTM debut’s best time was clocked by Frank Stippler, who drove the fastest lap in the first test session on Friday. The Audi factory driver comments on the circuit located approximately 40 kilometres south-west of the centre of Istanbul.
