Originally opened in 1930 as a 19-mile road track, the Masaryk Circuit (later renamed the Brno Circuit) quickly developed a reputation as world-class motorsport destination, becoming a regular venue for the Czechoslovakian Grand Prix between the 1930s and 1980s. However it was the formation in 1987 of a new 3.352-mile permanent track, built within the bounds of the original circuit, that brought modern, top level motor racing, including the World Touring Car Championship, Formula Two, and FIA GT1, to Brno. The undulating course, which was altered slightly in 1996 to produce its current 3.357-mile configuration, is almost fifty feet wide, offering drivers realistic overtaking opportunities at each of its 14 corners and producing a brand of competitive racing that is as pleasing to the eye as the forested hillsides surrounding it.
