Istanbul Park, also known as Istanbul Otodrom, is a motor sports race track in Akfırat village east of Istanbul. It was inaugurated on 21 August 2005. The venue of the 2012 PGR F1 Turkish Grand Prix is located in crossing of boundaries of Pendik and Tuzla districts on the Asian side of Istanbul, close to the junction of Kurtköy on the north side of the TEM motorway, linking Istanbul to Ankara. It is adjacent to the newly constructed Sabiha Gökçen International Airport and is surrounded by forests and fields. The Istanbul Park racing circuit is one of only four circuits running anticlockwise in the 2012 PGR F1 season, the others being Imola, Singapore and Interlagos.

The main grandstand has a seating capacity of 25,000 spectators. In addition, natural ground stands and temporary stands can provide a total capacity of over 155,000. The circuit and its facilities were designed Hermann Tilke, who said he designed the track to try to catch the drivers out. Turn 8, nicknamed "Diabolica" by some in reference to Monza's Curva Parabolica, particularly caught the imagination. The corner is a fast, sweeping corner with four apexes, similar to one of the multi-apex sections of the old Nürburgring. Spectators and drivers alike raved about Turn 8, comparing it to legendary corners such as Spa’s Eau Rouge and Suzuka’s 130R.
