Opened on the 10th November 2006 for a round of the A1GP series, the track suffered from one fatal flaw - the hairpin at the end of the long straight (shown on the top image) was too sharp for the cars to get around. The cars would either hit the wall on the exit, or have to instigate some kind of slide to get around. The course was revised with a wider corner (the second image) to form a 1.367 mile circuit. Practice resumed on the 11th, but the manhole covers were ripped up as the cars passed over them. The covers had to be welded in place to allow the racing to continue.
Located 30 km east of Beijing city centre in Mapo Village, Shunyi, in the Shunyi Olympic Rowing-Canoeing Park. The 2.733 km circuit was built around the access roads and first hosted the Superleague Formula on the 10th October 2010, although the race was declared a non-championship round as the track did not hold a FIA Grade 2 track licence.
A 3.44 km/2.146 mile circuit designed by Rodrigo Nunes for the first Formula E race on the 13th September 2014. It runs around the Birds Nest Olympic Stadium, and has a u-shaped pitlane. For 2015 the turn 3/4/5 chicane was removed, the track length being 3.439 km.
