The Brno Circuit is the premier track in the Czech Republic. The current permanent circuit was build in 1986 to replace a larger street circuit in the area. Its original name of Masaryk circuit refers to the first president of Czechoslovakia, but it is now commonly referred to as the Brno Circuit. The most important event is the annual MotoGP race.
The Brnenský drak is an actual hillclimb as the track has more than 70m of elevation.
The track is located a few kilometres west of Brno, the second largest city of the Czech Republic. As former capital of Moravia you would expect many monuments from the late medieval era. And with buildings as the Špilberk Castle and the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul it does not disappoint. But what makes Brno really internationally important is the pre-WWII architecture. The city spearheaded the Functionalist movement, which is demonstrated nowhere better as in the Villa Tugendhat. Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the villa is an icon of modernism and inscribed as a world heritage site in 2001.
