Shanghai International Circuit is a motorsport race track in Jiading, Shanghai, China. Located. It hosts the Chinese Grand Prix, and has done so since the 2004 season, where the race was won by Rubens Barrichello.

Circuit HistoryEdit

The idea for the circuit came from a group seeking to publicize the Shanghai area for tourism and business. A joint venture company, underwritten by the provincial government, was formed for construction. A swampy area, about 30 km northwest of downtown, was selected for the location. The design group of Hermann Tilke was hired, and a course was laid out. Construction took about 18 months, with over 1,800 engineers and workers on site.
