Hockenheim

When was the track built?

Hockenheim dates all the way back to 1932, when it was created by Mercedes as a test track for their cars, in particular to fettle them for the Tripoli Grand Prix. The original track was an enormous 12km triangular affair – in fact it was called the ‘Dreieckskurs’, or 'Triangle Track' – that speared off to the outskirts of nearby Oftersheim before looping back via the current B291.

When was its first Grand Prix?

The Dreieckskurs was shortened in 1938, while following a further 1960s update from Dutchman John Hugenholtz – the man responsible for Suzuka – Formula 1 came to Hockenheim in 1970. That year’s world-champion-to-be, Jochen Rindt, won the race by just 0.7 seconds from main title rival Jacky Ickx.

What’s the circuit like?

Up until 2002, Hockenheim’s design saw the cars roar out into the forest before looping around the Ostkurve and steaming back into the stadium. In 2002, the track was truncated, with the cars now turning right shortly after Turn 1 and bisecting the original track. Hockenheim is still a fast track, though, with Sebastian Vettel recording a 231km/h average during his 2018 pole lap.

We laser cut and hand paint a replica of the Germany race track, that comes with stainless steel standoffs, to be proudly displayed as wall art.

The track design comes in 2 standard sizes which are laser cut from either a 800mm x 600mm Board or a 600mm x 400mm board. Each track design will pretty much utilize the space given without distorting the track shape.


The race track wall art can come with the track name in the center of the art piece too.
