Om Slovakia Ring:
Automotodróm Slovakia Ring is a motor racing circuit in Orechová Potô?, Dunajská Streda District in Slovakia, approximately 30 km away from Bratislava Airport. It was built in 20082009. Sam Bird set the current track record on September 5, 2012, during testing session. He drove a 01:41.600 in his Dallara T12 of Formula Renault 3.5 Series/2012 prepared by ISR Racing.
New Zealand race car driver Matt Halliday suggested that the rear engine Porsches struggled with Slovakia Ring's long radius corners with much less front aerodynamics than the other cars. A major feature of the circuit is a prominent hump on one of the straights that causes many cars to fly with the front wheels off the ground. At least one car has flipped over entirely and crashed after going over the hump at a high speed.
