BCC is pleased to announce the opening of its Academy where participants of the Volunteer Programme will go through trainings. Irana Ahmadova, Head of BCC Academy and HR Department, says that newly-established Academy will help volunteers to develop skills needed for their future career.

Baku City Circuit (formally Baku Grand Prix LLC) stands for the name of official promoter of the 2017 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe in Azerbaijan, as well as the title of the host venue of the race.

With a length measuring at slightly over six kilometres, the 20-corner track will be lapped 51 times, with cars reaching potential speeds of up to 370km per hour, marking the circuit out as the fastest street circuit on the existing F1 calendar.

The circuit offers a number of challenges for drivers, including an extremely narrow uphill section along the old town walls that will require pinpoint accuracy, and it has an acceleration section of almost 2.2 kilometres along the seaside promenade, which will see the cars running flat out at very high speed - something that will create an incredible show for race fans.

On the weekend of June 16-18, 2017, the specially constructed Baku City Circuit will see Formula 1 cars race around the picturesque streets of downtown Baku, incorporating the city’s UNESCO-protected old town – Icheri Sheher - as well as its modern skyline and beautiful Caspian Sea vista in front of a global audience of millions.
