Ahvenisto, Hameenlinna

5.0
Ahvenisto Race Circuit (Finnish: Ahveniston moottorirata) is a motor racing circuit located in Hämeenlinna, Finland. The circuit is 2,840 metres (1.765 mi) long. It features a total elevation change of 32 metres (105 ft), its main straight is 280 metres (0.2 mi) in length and its width varies between 9 metres (30 ft) and 17 metres (56 ft).

Its elevation changes, short or sometimes inexistent run-off areas, and numerous fast bends have led to some to suggest that it is the hardest and most dangerous race track in Finland, or even one of the most challenging in the world.
While the official lap record stands at 1:13.226 and was achieved by Marko Nevalainen in a Formula Three car on September 16, 2000, the 1982 Formula One World Champion Keke Rosberg managed an unofficial lap record of 1:10.000 during his 1984 show run in a Williams FW08C Formula 1 car. Meanwhile, two-time Formula One world champion Mika Häkkinen briefly held the lap record for the Carrera Cup class, recording a time of 1:19.905 during his visit to Ahvenisto on May 29, 2004 in a Porsche 911 GT3, but was surpassed by a 1:18.923 from Fredrik Ros the following year.
