Replica of Sendai Hi-Land Raceway v1.0
- Number Of Turns:
- Length (Unit):
Here’s my recreation of the wonderful circuit in northern Japan.
The track was damaged by the 2011 earthquakes and is permanently closed since September 2014. There are plans to turn the land into a solar-power park now.
Besides the All-Japan GT championship and the Super Taikyu endurance series no major championship racing was held at Sendai. Still it was used for club racing, testing and manufacturer days. Also the circuit was used extensively in the development of the latest version of the Nissan GT-R.
The track was built on the site of an entertainment complex and opened in 1986. While the home- and backstraights are rather flat the rest of the course wounds around the hillside. The route rises from T 7 to T 9 so the top of the track is after T 9. Some pretty tricky dropping turns (T 10/11 and T 13/14) lead down the valley again.
The circuit can be described as rather technical but also includes high speed sections.
