FIA-category 2 (Part 1) 







Recently, more and more large-scale sporting events happening or will happen in Russia. In addition to high-profile, such as the 2014 Olympics, FIFA World Cup 2018, still a large number competitions are not so discussed, but no less vazhnyh.Vzyat, such as World Championships in Athletics, Hockey World Cup, World Cup Bandy, the Universiade and a number of championships in other disciplines will be held in our beloved country (do not scold me if something is forgotten and carried some sports in the "other", and hockey wrote and thereby offended anyone … I just love hockey with a ball XD). Nationwide built sports infrastructure, both for the very young, just starting its sporty way, and for the professionals (if you look at the articles on this site, then you will see for yourself.) Ie, you can say, athletic Russian life is developing and progressing every day, not only at the professional level, but also at the general sports and wellness. We conclude that Russia is developing sport across the board.

But there is a huge section of sports, so-called — "technical" and one of its lines is MOTORSPORT! During Soviet times, it is quite the same, well developed as a nationally and internationally-built tracks, developing auto industry, but with the collapse (collapse) of the USSR every industry, not just a sport, nachili survive hard times, and of course the most technological and cost of production have collapsed (mikroellektronika, machine tool, automotive, etc.). About motorsports could forget 10-15 years … ((plus, even read somewhere that at the time of the Soviet Union in the basic tracks were built in the Baltic States, on Ukraine and of course they all went to the "foreign" territory). short, so as not to breed here verbiage, go straight to the main-motor racing got a second wind just 5 years nazad.I in this article I wanted to show how fast it develops that This being done, namely, on the slopes of world-class!





1) Herman Teal’c — the architect of race tracks, the world’s leading architect of race tracks, almost all new tracks of Formula 1 has designed it, but he monopolist in the formula))) and many tracks he projects in Russia (good or bad, don `t know, but the the fact that the Russian designs Tilke tracks, at least, prestigious!)

2) Why is the second category of FIA? Because the route of category 2 can receive all events, both local and international (bikes, trucks, passenger cars and anything that moves))), except for Formula 1 and their tests, and hence it is full racetracks.

3) Fixed Ring race track is a system of paved roads and sites with related equipment adapted for competitions in automobile and motorcycle racing circuit. The track is furnished and equipped with all the safety features prescribed specific requirements set out in the documents of the International Automobile Federation (FIA) for the race tracks of the 2nd category, namely: security guards, special bumpers, asphalt security zones, modern design of the tire barriers, fences Placement viewers concrete fence with wire guard band between the pit lane and the start-finish line. 

4) The first category of the FIA Trails in Russia, so far, two are under construction, in Moscow and in Sochi. And that’s good!
