Who needs to build private racetracks when we've got incredible public roads like these?


10.) Marina Bay Street Circuit (Singapore GP)

Is anyone surprised that one of the most beautiful countries in the world is home to a gorgeous street circuit? It's one of the few tracks the F1 circus looks forward to, and that's saying something.

9.) The Raceway At Belle Isle

Circuit Map

This rough and tight circuit is located in one of the most scenic parts of Detroit. It lay dormant for many years, but Indy Car made a return in 2011 thanks to the efforts of Roger Penske.

Now we've just got to convince Bernie to bring F1 back to Detroit.

7.) Guia Circuit (Macau)

Circuit Map

This circuit, home of the Macau Grand Prix, is like the Monaco of the east. It's even got an insanely tight hairpin, maybe the tightest in the world. It's impossibly narrow, so if you're watching a race at Guia, expect to see lots of pileups.

6.) Circuit de Pau-Ville

Circuit Map

Overshadowed by a certain other francophone street circuit (**cough**Monaco**cough**), Pau is one of the greatest and most challenging European road courses. F1 doesn't race here anymore, but it is home to excellent Formula 3 and Historic Grands Prix.

5.) Circuit de la Sarthe

Circuit Map

What else can be said about a public road where race cars have hit 240 mph? The craziest part is that testing used to occur when the roads were still open! Insanity.

4.) Mt. Panorama

Circuit Map

The first time I played Australia's landmark track in a video game, I couldn't believe it was real. It is indeed real, and it's incredible.

3.) Pikes Peak

Circuit Map

Calling Pikes Peak a "hill climb" is like saying Jimi Hendrix is a "good guitarist." Both are true statements, but they don't really tell the whole story.

It's one of the most grueling races in the world, with the most insane cars and drivers in attendance.

2.) Circuit de Monaco

Circuit Map

Even if you got rid of all the glitz and glamour, the Monaco GP would still be the most amazing F1 race of the year for the track alone. There's no way modern formula cars were ever meant to race on streets this tight an narrow.

1.) Snaefell Mountain Course (Isle Of Man)

Circuit Map

The Isle of Man circuit is over 20 miles longer than the Nürburgring Nordschleife, and is home to some of the most insane racing you'll ever see.

Watch this video to see what I mean, but I must warn you that it's not for the faint of heart.
