A circuit concept for Cluj, Romania

Take a look at this circuit concept proposed for Cluj-Napoca city in Romania and designed by Architecture and Urban Planning student, Matei Mihai for his masters project

by Matei Mihai


Architecture and Urban Planning student, Matei Mihai, has designed an imaginative racetrack concept for his masters degree. There is no commercial reality behind the proposal, but it's nonetheless an interesting idea!

Mihai's idea is for a track located in Romania, near Cluj-Napoca city at the highway exit between Cluj-Napoca and Turda. The area is a small mountain valley, which provides natural ground for grandstands and good sound protection for the nearby villages. A few kilometers south are mountain resorts and tourists attractions.

The site has an area that was already leveled by a concrete production company and this zone has been used for the main straight of the track including the pit lane. For the rest of the circuit, the existing terrain topography was used.

The main concept of the project is the smooth blend between the natural site and the constructed zones. There are two pit buildings for participating teams, the first one for the main events and a secondary one for smaller events. There are also three grandstands for viewers, with locations, which have been chosen to provide the best view possible and the best sound effects.

The circuit, which provides the possibility to hold two simultaneous events at any one time, comprises 20 turns and measures a length of 6,105m, with the main straight measuring 710m. It is designed for high-speeds and to challenge drivers.

Mihai’s project would also include a four-star hotel for use by the public and by teams. Near to the main grandstand there is a public zone and a Motorsport Center for visitors who may be interested in shopping, and a motorsport history museum tour. For circuit staff, the concept includes an administrative building.
