The Nardò Ring is a 7.8-mile-long (12.5 km) high-speed test track in Nardò, Italy. With its circular design and banked lanes, it allows for the testing of cars at “neutral speeds” at which the driver doesn’t need to turn the wheel, as if driving in a straight lane.
The banking allows cars to reach the so-called “neutral speed” at which they can drive along the banked circuit without turning the wheels, effectively driving in a straight line. At Nardò, this is achieved at different speeds in each of its four car/motorcycle lanes. The neutral speed in Lane 1, for example, is 62 mph (100 km/h), rising to 149 mph (240 km/h) in outer Lane 4.
