A Circuit Race is a lap-based race event that has its starting and finishing point set on the same location. Circuit races appear in every Need for Speed title except Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010), Need for Speed: The Run and Need for Speed: Rivals. In Need for Speed: ProStreet, circuit races are known as Grip events.
