Zhejiang Tianma International Circuit is positioned as the world's leading comprehensive motorsports park. The track is built in the hills following natural conditions, its abstract architectural form echoing the dynamics of racing. The project team re-planned and designed the originally abandoned quarry to meet the demands of supporting racing competition, being open to the city, and becoming a place for citizens to stay and relax. After completion, it will become a new landmark bringing urban vitality to Shaoxing, improving the quality of its public spaces, and establishing a more positive relationship with surrounding communities. Zhejiang Tianma Motorsports Park is built following the natural terrain, blending seamlessly into the local mountain scenery. The beautiful natural environment and unique track settings bring racers and spectators unforgettable racing and watching experiences. The mixed-use design considers long-term benign site utilization and operation while continuing the original space characteristics and pursuing sustainable development. The project is Zhejiang Province’s first professional international racing track and has an FIA (FIA) secondary standard main track as well as the country's first CIK (International Kart Commission) standard kart track. The project area consists of an exhibition center, a club building, a welcome center, an office building, a kart building, a warehouse, a single-story indoor parking lot, and a public square, all of which together embody the "one-stop" design concept, creating an efficient, integrated community space. A metal roof connects every single unit to form a multi-level three-dimensional open space for public activities. The design highlights flexibility in terms of space and function, providing various possibilities for race operations and test drive experience.
