Oschersleben, Saxony-Anhalt
Description

For a country so rich in motor racing history, Germany had surprisingly few permanent circuits when Oschersleben opened in 1997. Set in the remote countryside of the former East Germany, it was only the third such venue in the country, joining the Grand Prix circuits at the Nürburgring and Hockenheim. Although the circuit was originally planned for events up to and including Formula 3, it held rounds of the FIA F3000 and GT championships during its second season – the latter being held until 2009. Oschersleben may be flat and uninspiring, but it does offer state-of-the-art testing facilities, including a sprinkler system that can be used to simulate wet racing conditions.
