Spotlight on… Copenhagen

Denmark’s capital city of Copenhagen will make history this year when it becomes the first location to host PURE ETCR on a temporary street circuit on August 6-8.

The Bellahøj Park venue has hosted the city’s Historic Grand Prix since 2013, after the event’s original temporary track, Fælledparken – which circled the national government building once a year – was deemed unsuitable.

Among the notable drivers who have tackled the track during various runnings of the CHGP are Le Mans legend Tom Kristensen, three-time FIA World Touring Car Champion Andy Priaulx, Formula 1 racers Jan Magnussen and Prince Joachim of Denmark.

Located 5km north-west of the central business district, Bellahøj has become an ultra-popular venue with drivers and fans and is set to provide a thrill a minute in what is set to be the 20th running of the CHGP.

Its narrow, concrete-lined circuit is sure to provide an additional challenge to the PURE ETCR drivers behind the wheels of the most powerful touring cars ever produced and challenge the world’s best saloon racers to their very limits.
