Turn 15 Anthony Noghes :

It is not always feasible to facilitate a purpose-built built track, they are expensive and take up a lot of space. Fortunately, motorsport has been circumnavigating this problem for as long as the sport has existed by forming temporary tracks in cities or towns and utilising public roads, parks and runways. 

A street circuit requires roads to be closed off to have barriers installed and temporary facilities (garages, pits, grandstands and entertainment facilities) erected. Evolution is a key part of the weekend with support categories used to help runner in the track. 

In 2022 there are 7 street circuits including Melbourne, Monaco and Singapore. Miami is the latest street circuit and a circuit taking in Las Vegas’ strip is due to follow next year.
