Shanghai International Circuit is located on northeast of Anting Township in the Jiading District of Shanghai, some 30 km from the center of Shanghai city and 20 km to Hongqiao International airport.
April and May 2003 architectural designers came
to the countryside located at the Northeast of Anting Town, Jiading
District, Shanghai City with a brief to design an exciting race track to
be known as Shanghai International Auto Racetrack in the setting of the peaceful and
watery region in Southeast China.
Many people were skeptical about the possibility of building up Shanghai International Auto Racetrack occupying 2.5km2 within 18 months, since the track was built on soft ground, where stringent specifications were necessary.
30km from central Shanghai
Viewed from overhead, the circuit's shape reminds one of the Chinese symbol "Shang", which translates as "high" or "above". According to computer simulations, current-generation Formula One cars will lap the track in about 1m 34s at an average speed close to 205 km/h (127.4 mph). On the longest, 1175-metre straight, which links Turns 13 and 14, cars should reach a maximum speed of 327 km/h (203mph).
Costing approximately 2.6 billion yuan
million), the circuit was financed by a government-funded joint-venture company, consisting of the Shanghai Juss Corporation, Shanghai National Property Management Co Ltd, and Shanghai Jia'an Investment and Development Co Ltd. Architectural and design experts began planning and visiting the site between April and May 2003, and the area was transformed from swampland to international racetrack within 18 months with a team of 3000 engineers working around the clock.
