Autodrom Most is the oldest autodrome in the Czech Republic and although FIA WTCR made its debut there last year, the TCR Eastern Europe series will be there this year for the very first time.
The final event of TCR Eastern Europe season will take place in Most and drivers expectations are high. Especially from those, who know the track very well. The length of the circuit is 4219 meters, width 12 to 14 meters. The start and finish line is 792 meters long and it is the longest straight section of the circuit. It has a total of 21 turns, 9 left and 12 right.
Autodrom Most was built between 1978–1983 on the site of a former surface mine. Most regularly hosts European Truck Racing Championship, but in recent years the circuit has gained some popular championships. Whether it was FIA WTCR, Superbike World Championship or ADAC GT.
However, the history of motorsport in Most dates back to the 1940s. Exactly in 1947, the first motorcycle race took place in the streets of Most and five years later the first car race happend. In the following years, the place of the venue often changed, but always stayed in Most. In the early 1970s, races took place on highway-type roads, but it was clear that street races could not have a long-term existence – and so the development of a modern autodrome began.
Autodrom Most will welcome TCR Eastern Europe on 2th-4th September. Mikel Azcona set the fastest WTCR qualifying time 1: 38.757 and also fastest race lap 1: 39.503.
