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, and one of the only which is actually in the Arctic circle.
