World RX of China, Hong Kong
November 11 @ 8:30 am - November 12 @ 6:00 pm305Yuan
World RX is heading to the Asia-Pacific region for the very first time, with the campaign set to conclude on a 1225-metre track next to the iconic Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong’s Central Harbourfront Event Space, composed of alternating gravel (37%) and asphalt (63%) sections – the latter all closed public roads.
The cars will blast away from the start-line and hit the gravel on the dash to Turn One – a double 90-degree left-hander – which leads to a short, sharp sequence through Turns Two and Three. The unsealed surface then makes way for a long drag down to Turn Four, a tight right-hand hairpin – as the asphalt part of the lap begins.
After exiting the hairpin, drivers will deploy all of the power available to them as they race down the longest straight on the circuit. Next to tackle are a pair of consecutive right-handers in Turns Five and Six – the latter overlooked by the Hong Kong Observation Wheel – before sliding back onto the gravel and leaping over the jump on the approach to Turn Seven.
Alternatively, they may elect to dive into the joker, which is 23m shorter than the standard lap but tighter, twistier and slower. The joker and main lap then merge right before the finish line – setting the scene for some spectacular battles around the first city centre circuit in the championship’s history.
