Euroformula Open driver Gulhuseyn Abdullayev has given the Baku City Circuit its maiden test run, becoming the first racing driver to sample the new track, Grandprixtimes reported.

The Baku circuit is set to make its debut next month hosting the returning Formula 1 European Grand Prix.

Measuring 3.732 miles and with 20 corners, the Hermann Tilke-designed street layout passes some of the Azerbaijan capital's most iconic landmarks, including the Azadliq Square and Old City.

The European Grand Prix takes place from the 17-19 June in Baku, with the new addition boosting this year's F1 calendar to 21 races.

Ahead of its first event, 19-year-old local driver Abdullayev became the first to sample racing machinery around the track, completing four laps at the wheel of the previous-spec GP3 car.

"The Baku City Circuit consists of a combination of both slow and fast turns," he said after the test run.

"In general, this track has a very unique layout. Unlike other street tracks, Baku City Circuit has sufficient width as well."
