The narrow alleys and the Old City walls and the stunning views over the Caspian sea will contrast the modern skyline of Baku and provide a stunning backdrop for this street race. There will also be a narrow incline as the track circles the Old City, before opening out onto a 2.2 kilometre acceleration zone along the Caspian coast.
