The Sentul International Circuit is a motorsport race track in Citeureup ( Jawa Barat ) in Indonesia.
It is used primarily for motorcycle races and the Asian Formula 3 Championship and A1 Grand Prix. The track is fast and very wide, which allows for many different driving lines. Due to its geographic location near the equator, very often there are high air temperatures and humidities, which makes the racing very tiring.
On the grounds are located next to the Grand Prix circuit, series for motocross, autocross and go- kart racing, as well as a three -star hotel and a golf course.
The Sentul International Circuit is the result of the first serious attempt to pass a Formula 1 suitable route in Asia to build outside of Japan. 1990 sat Hutomo Mandala Putra, the son of former President Suharto, in person for the project. After its completion in 1994, the track was fast but the progress, especially in terms of track safety, obsolete and was unfit for Formula 1 racing.
The motorcycle world championship, however, was 1996 and 1997, the Grand Prix of Indonesia for motorcycles in Sentul from. The Superbike World Championship toured from 1994 to 1997 a year on the slopes.
The Asian financial crisis of 1997 finally made sure that for years no races were held in Sentul with more world championship status. With the A1 Grand Prix 2005 guested for the first time a worldwide racing series on the slopes. In 2008, moreover, a return of the Superbike World Championship was scheduled, the appointment was canceled.
