About the Megara Track
of technical riding,corners of all kinds and one crazy straight for the fun
The Athens Circuit (formerly the Aftokinitodromio Megaron in Greek) was the first permanent circuit to be built in Greece, opening a few months ahead of the country's only other circuit at Serres.
Located on the outskirts of the town of Megara, the track is just 35K from the capital Athens, hence its change of name in more recent times.
The brainchild of Christos Anastasisdes, construction of the circuit began on the 200-acre site in 1994 and took 4 years to complete.
The course has a length of 2.1 km. with 6 right and 4 left and an average width of 11-12 metres. With the longest straight measuring just 580 metres this is not a facility on which yoy can get too much of a head of steam, resembling something of an oversized kart track. Indeed, while there is a full kart facility located alongside the main track, karts also been know to use shortened variations of the road course as well.
During its lifetime the track has hosted domestic car and motorcycle racing, as well as events for names such as McLaren and Prodrive, a Ferrari festival and even a Supermotard world chapionship event.
