THE Solitudering is a former temporary road circuit, in the forest just west of Stuttgart. The area hosted racing events for a number of years, but only hosted Formula 1 races from 1961 to 1964. Racing was then abandoned in favor of upgrades to the Hockenheimring, 60 km away.

Circuit HistoryEdit

Racing in the area around Solitude Castle started with hillclimbs in the mid 1900s.
