Baku Grand Prix

10 July 2015

We are providing support to our clients Baku Grand Prix supporting them with the design and construction of the facilities for the teams, their guests, the press, catering and stands.

This is an exciting development for the team at H+H Fire, not only is this a prestigious project, but the circuit will also pass close by some of the iconic buildings we have worked on over the past five years.

The street circuit will take in Caspian Waterfront, Port Baku Residence and Mall, The JW Marriott Hotel, Four Seasons to name but a few of our projects.

It will be great to see Hamilton et all whizzing past these iconic buildings next year.

A defining feature of the track is the narrow climb around the city’s historic centre. Track designer Hermann Tilke described this section as “extremely narrow” and a rendering of the corner shows it will be one of the tightest sections on any F1 track.

Turn 9 and 10, Baku street circuit rendering, AzerbaijanIn contrast a seven-lane road which runs parallel to Baku’s seafront will provide room for the start/finish area, with the temporary pits and paddock laid out in front of the Government House building.

Estimated lap length of 6km around the anticlockwise, 20-turn track, with top speeds of up to 340kph (211mph).

The highest speeds are likely to be achieved as the cars approach to the start/finish area, with the pit lane entrance on their left
