List of motor racing circuits by FIA Grade

This is a list of auto racing circuits by FIA Grading.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

Appendix O to the FIA International Sporting Code defines the inspection and licensing process for racing circuits intending to host races sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), motorsport's governing body. The grades issued by the FIA Grade from 1 to 6 depending on the suitability of the circuit for different types and groups of cars, with 1 being the highest grade and the only circuits that can host Formula One races. A circuit holding a particular grade can also host events featuring categories of cars at lower grades. The grades are issued "with the sole purpose of permitting the registration of races on the FIA International Calendar, for the categories of vehicles specified."[8]

Grades 1–4 concern various categories of car depending on their power to weight ratio, Grade 5 is for alternative energy vehicles, and Grade 6 relates to autocross, rallycross and ice racing courses.[8]

Grade OneEdit

There are 46 Grade One circuits in 32 different nations. Circuits holding Grade One certification may host events involving "Automobiles of Groups D (FIA International Formula) and E (Free Formula) with a weight/power ratio of less than 1 kg/hp."[8] As such, a Grade One certification is required to host events involving Formula One cars.[9]
