The Jiangsu Wantrack International Circuit (南京万驰国际汽车公园), also known as the Nanjing Wantrack Circuit, is the first FIA-certified circuit in Jiangsu Province, near to the city of Nanjing in Eastern China.
Built as part of a 2000 acre development, the circuit sits alongside driver training facilities, a 20,000 square metre test track, separate kart and cross-country courses, a five-star auto-themed hotel, car showroom facilities and - rather unusually - a strawberry picking park!
Built at a total cost of 200 million yuan, the main track is broadly "F" shaped and opened in 2014 following inspection by FIA circuit delegate Tim Schenken. In its longest form it is just 1.348 miles (2.169 km) and packs a lot into a relatively small space - which does at least mean all parts of the track are visible to spectators.
Flat as a pancake and extremely tight and twisty, it is no Spa-Francorchamps and has a confusing variance in track width throughout. Nevertheless, with the circuit located within Nanjing City's Lishui Development Area and having more than 8 million people on its doorstep, it looks set to have a healthy future.
Among the first major championships to visit was the China Road Racing Championship for motorbikes in 2015, while 2016 sees the addition of the China Touring Car Championship. The circuit has also signed a co-operation agreement China's first permanent circuit at Zhuhai, which will see the two facilities commercial resources and professional technical staff.
