Specifically designed to host Formula races in Sentul; the circuit is located in the hilly area Bogor Regency which is slightly cooler than Jakarta. The idea of the circuit struck in 1990 as a result of the sincere efforts of Hutomo Mandala Putra, son of President Suharto and motor racing aficionado. The construction took around three years, and the circuit was officially opened in 1993. The track is 2.464 mi long having 11 turns amongst which Turn 2 is the only truly high-speed corner of the track. The circuit's track is smoother, simpler and broader than the older built tracks, providing much ease to drivers for taking faster leaps.
The current structure of the circuit is a truncated version of the original design being 40% shorter, having the 900-metre main straight that allows speeds up to 300 kilometers per hour.
