What makes a good racetrack?

Monaco. Indianapolis. Le Mans. Spa. Daytona.

There are certain racetracks that are so intertwined with the history of racing that they become as legendary as the icons who navigate their corners.

"When you have these old racetracks with a lot of history, then there's a lot of things that happened in each corner. It makes it unique, it makes it interesting for people," Hermann Tilke -- managing director of Tilke Engineers & Architects, who have designed from scratch or overseen renovations of 17 circuits on the Formula One, NASCAR and MotoGP calendars in 2024 -- told ESPN.
