The Autódromo Miguel E. Abed is a racing track located in the town of Amozoc, 30 kilometres (18.64 mi) east of the city of Puebla [1] in the Mexican state of the same name.

It was opened in 2005 and considered to be one of Mexico's premier racing facilities. It features a road course and a 1.25 miles (2.01 km) oval. The track held three World Touring Car Championship events in 2005, 2006 and 2008.

The annual 24 Hours of Mexico race is held at the track since [2006].

The oval track is used twice a year by the NASCAR Corona Series and T4 Series.

On June 14, 2009, NASCAR Corona Series pilot Carlos Pardo was killed after a last-lap tangle for the lead with Jorge Goeters. As the race was over the time limit, standings from the previous lap were considered and Pardo was posthumously declared winner of the race.

The touring car circuit

Autódromo Miguel E. Abed is based on an American style oval with long banked turns and then a twisty, technical infield which is similar to Autódromo Internacional de Curitiba with an extremely rough surface. It has no camber worth noticing on the infield part and elevation change. There is compromise to the setup of the touring car on the touring car circuit whether it go fast on the infield (requires more downforce) or go fast on the oval part (requires more speed). Touring car winning on this circuit requires smart driving as about sheer speed, tyre wear control (because of the rough surface) and strategy.[1]
