Track Infos from Wiki and racingcircuits.info :
Arctic Circle Raceway is the biggest race track in Norway. It is located 30 kilometres (19 mi) south of the Arctic Circle and 25 kilometres (16 mi) north of Mo I Rana. The track was opened in 1995. The racetrack price was $10 million. The racetrack is custom built for road racing, and it also has the possibility for 24-hour racing in full daylight in summer because of the midnight sun. It is the northernmost race track in the world.
The world’s most northerly circuit, as its name implies, nestles close to the Arctic Circle in Norway. With full modern amenities, the circuit is also the longest in Norway.
Built in 1995 on the site of a former quarry, it is a modern and flowing circuit on undulating terrain close to Mo i Rana. The long summer days mean that it would be possible to host a 24 hour race entirely in daylight, while the long winter months also mean that ice racing and other winter sports can be hosted here.
The track was designed primarily with motorbikes in mind and features elevation changes of up to 31 metres. A special asphalt surface had to be formulated to cope with the harsh winter climate and around 62 million kroner of government funding was used in the construction of the track.
