Tehran International Autodrome


Tehran International Autodrome




Tehran International Autodrome is the first race track circuit in Iran which can host Formula One races. This racing circuit has been designed and constructed in accordance with standards of Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) to be used for multiple purposes such as international corporations. The German Tilke (the designer and constructor of 10 Formula One racing circuits in the world) and Apex were the consultants of this project.

Facilities available in this complex promise the presence of the most up-to-date Formula One cars and the most experienced drivers in Iran and a new experience of speed excitement and hearing the roar of Formula One engines to all Iranians interested in racing sports.

Tehran International Autodrome has been designed and constructed on an area of 85 hectares with a length of 5 km. The pit lane of this racing circuit has been also designed based on previous experiences of Formula One racing circuits construction. This led to obtaining Level 2 and Level 3 international homologation.

This complex consists of 18 bends, six of which are inspired by the world’s most fascinating and attractive Formula One racing circuits, such as the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia, the Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg in Germany, the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium, Carousel racing circuit in Germany, the Suzuka International Racing Course in Japan, and Silverstone Circuit in Britain.

Depending on the car type, course, and the driver’s mastery, maximum speed in this racing circuit has been predicted to be over 300 km per hour.

Safety of Tehran International Autodrome:

In accordance with international standards, principles of professional design have been fully taken into account in the safety of Tehran International Autodrome. Racetracks were made safe in cyberspace based on movement simulation, speed of cars, and type of bends. In addition to the paved road, a verge route (sides of tracks), asphalt runoff, gravel (sandy) runoff, tires covered with conveyor belt, and three layers of guardrail have been established to guarantee the safety of drivers and cars at high speeds.

Moreover, all regulations and guidelines related to the safety of the driver and the associated team will be trained to individuals in short-term or long-term courses, depending on their purpose (recreational or professional).
