Update November 27th 2004 (by Leomar Nestor Teichmann)
A little slower than waited, but the work of the Autòdromo Internacional de Santa Cruz do Sul is, finally, in it’s final stretch. With the paving of the track practically ended, the attentions of the work teams return to the construction of the pits and of the wall of the signaling island. With official inauguration confirmed for April 10th 2005, the new race track already consists in the calendar of CBA and it should receive proofs of the 9 main national categories. F-Truck will be the first category to accelerate for the almost 3.5 km of the track and it will be the responsible for exploring the secrets of this new demanding plan. In the link www.lnt.eng.br, beyond to check the updated pictures regularly, it can be known all the details of this that will be, with certainty, one of the great Brazilian temples of the speed.

Update January 16th 2005
Inauguration is confirmed on April 10th 2005. CBA announced that in 2005 there will be 11 proofs of the main national categories
