The route is 19.93km long and has 156 turns. The departure takes place at 2,865 meters above sea level and ends about 1,440 meters above sea level, hence its nickname: "The race to the clouds". The difference in altitude, and therefore air pressure, is such that it significantly influences the power of the engines between departure and arrival.
