Of course, you will find a lot more than six racetracks in the country on the Vistula River. However, we decided to start our list with the places that stand out from the rest.

If you’re just starting your adventure with interest rallies, start with these tracks. You won’t regret it.

Poznan track.

The Poznan track is one of the most popular facilities of its type in our country.

What sets it apart from others?

For example, the fact that it is the only car in Poland that has the approval of the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile), that is, the International Automobile Federation. It allows Tor Poznań to participate in the organization of races of the highest level – both motorcycle and car races.

How is the route itself?

It just so happens that there are two of them on the website. The first is a car and motorcycle (length 4.1 km), which offers up to 11 turns and many long and straight sections with asphalt. The second is for karting (1.5 km long) and offers 8 turns and several straights. As for the width, it is 12 m on both routes.

The Silesian Ring

We started with the most popular, and now it’s time (until recently) the newest race track in the country. The Silesian Ring is located at Kamien Sleński Airport (near Opole), where it was opened in 2016.

There is no denying that the track will appeal to many four-wheelers.

The main track is 3.6 km long, making it the second longest track in Poland (right after Poznan). It includes 15 turns and several straight sections (including one 730 m long, ideal for speed testing strong cars). The track width varies from 12 to 15 m.

You will also find a 1.5-kilometer karting track. This is just a part of the main track, with 7 corners and several straights (including one 600 m long). Thanks to this you can prove yourself as a driver in any situation.

When it comes to things that are not directly related to driving, Silesia Ring offers tremendous opportunities for events. It includes, among other things:

  • Event and movie lounge,
  • a launch tower,
  • an observation deck,
  • kitchen and catering facilities,
  • etc.

Interestingly, the site also features an official Porsche training center. This means that customers and fans of the brand also train on the track.

Yastrjab track.

Considered by many to be the most modern in Poland, Tor Jastrząb offers not only rally opportunities, but also driver training. It is located near Szydłowiec (near Radom) and has several attractions:

  • The main track,
  • karting track,
  • right into the race (1/4 mile).
  • slip plates that replicate the loss of traction.

The total length of all the courses is almost 3.5 km. Interestingly, they were all built from scratch (and not on asphalt, as is the case with most similar designs).

In addition, Tor Jastrząb also offers accommodation, a restaurant, gyms and other attractions.

Kielce Circuit

This time one of the oldest facilities of this type, since it operates since 1937. Tor Kielce was built in Kielce Maslov Airport, in a very picturesque area.

Drivers have at their disposal a wide runway (1.2 km long) on which they can easily mark routes of various types and degree of difficulty. One circle of Toru Kielce is about 2.5 km with 7 different turns and several straight lines. The longest is 400 m, which is more than enough to test the power of the machine.

In terms of driving dynamics, the company is one of the leaders in the country. You will not run out of strong impressions here!

Track Bemovo.

One of the most interesting institutions of this type for residents of Warsaw and its surroundings, as well as for people looking for a good driving experience. Bemowo racetrack was built on the site of the former Babice airport, thanks to which it has a wide runway of 1.3 km long.

As a result, every race organizer can customize the route for his customers almost as they want.

In addition to rally driving, safe driving training is also offered here. For this purpose, the caterpillars with support plates are used. In addition, you will find rollover and collision simulators here.

It is worth noting that the Bemovo track hosts numerous car events, including the popular Barbork Rally. In addition, Robert Kubica and several other famous Polish drivers have visited the facility.

Tor Uhlenge.
