The Schleize Dreieck is the oldest race track in Germany, having first held a race on the 10th June 1923. In its original configuration (shown top), the track was 7.6310km. Between May and August of 1988 the track was revised, and it is now 6.8165 km, featuring 22 corners, an elevation difference of 69m (the lowest being 470m at Seng, and the highest being 539m at Schauerschachtkurve), and a track width of 10m. For 2004, the circuit was shortened to 3.805 km, with a shorter loop being used - this new configuration is shown below, the new shorter loop being highlighted in yellow.
