Racing will start from the main square of Azerbaijan - Freedom Square, later racing cars will pass near the Government House and finish at the State Flag Square. Some sections of the track will pass on Istiglaliyyet street and pass fortress walls of the medieval old town of Baku - Icheri Sheher.

Despite the fact that cars will move through the streets of the city, their maximum speed will be around 360 km/h, which will allow viewers to enjoy the speed and skill of the pilots. The development of the track was entrusted to the architectural bureau Hermann Tilke - German engineer, who is known for creating city tracks and autodrome turns with a variety of slow turns.
