The Motorsport Arena Oschersleben is 3.667 kilometres (2.28 mi) long race track with a width of 11 – 13 meters and elevation changes of 23 metres. The circuit is located in Oschersleben, Börde (approximately 30 km from Magdeburg), Northern Germany. Its fairly flat contours create a smooth and fast circuit.[1]

Inaugurated on 25 July 1997 (still as "Motopark Oschersleben") it was Germany's third permanent race track, after Nürburgring and Hockenheimring. Since then EuroSpeedway Lausitz and the rebuilt Sachsenring have been added as a fourth and fifth permanent race track.

Motorsport Arena Oschersleben was a traditional venue for F.I.A.'s European Touring Car Championship from 2001 to 2004 and the World Touring Car Championship from 2005.

The circuit

Consistently driving quickly is hard work on this fast and smooth circuit. The first turn, modified from its original rounded shape into a sharp 90-degree left, is a frequent source of multi-car accidents, especially on the first lap. There are key turns to master for a really fast lap. The end of the finish straight is the fastest spot on the circuit. The McDonalds chicane allows for different racing lines. However, an aggressive line may lead to early retirement with broken suspension.[2]
