Opened: January 1, 1913
Location: Giza, Ad Daqahliyah, Egypt
Turns: 24
Length: 3.911 mi
Real-world record: NA
SRW virtual record: 3:14.430- Stroggefier

The 3.9-mile course traces the route of a partially-eroded limestone-paved circuit uncovered by Egyptologists in the 1930s—an ancient track that is believed to have served as the setting for an early form of chariot racing, possibly undertaken to honor dead Pharaohs. Passing between the pyramids of Menkaure and Khafre, the 4,500-year-old Menkaure Causeway represents the circuit’s most scenic leg, but the shifting sands, drifting corners, and testing jumps ensure drivers’ eyes rarely stray from the road ahead! Due to the area’s obvious cultural heritage, real-world events at this track are a rarity.

Great track to practice off-road driving. Spectacular scenery!  

 

But I would appreciate sooo much to have more items on the roadside, in order to have nice references all along the track...

 

I'm talking about some fences with publicity, or fans cheering (maybe not the best example) but you got my idea right?? :P

 

Sometimes is kind of hard to remember the next turn (even with the map) that you're taking... :wacko:  only seeing sand and blue sky...

had tons of fun here,still it could be better if sand where little less bumby and stickier

non 4wd cars should struggle here and low racecars with slicks sould sink after a few meters

 

also a shorter layout would be nice and $ events
