GEO - GEORGIA
RUSTAVI INTERNATIONAL MOTORPARK / RUSTAVI RING
Description Circuit similar to a stadium (spectators can see most of the track), built on a flat ground. The most interesting section is a left parabolic curve, just after the first right bend. Straights are linked by banked corners and hairpins. It had been opened in 1978, first race was held in 1979. In 2002 it seemed that the track should have been rebuilt, but works started only in 2009.

Description dated September 2002 (by GAF - Georgian Automobile Federation)
