As you can see in the video below, the boys have a bit of fun sliding around the carved out dirt track in a pair of Infiniti M sedans. The guys also give us a bit of a rundown on the circuit, in terms of its corners and its character.

The circuit is a rather long one, measuring 5.9km, making it the third-longest circuit in the current F1 schedule.

The 2014 Russian F1 Grand Prix is likely to take place towards the end of the season, around November 2014.
