Maspalomas
Description Permanent circuit designed by Sandro Rocci (who had already worked at Jarama), to be built in a mountainous area in Isle of Gran Canaria. Because of its climate, it would have been a perfect circuit to be used in winter, for tests and hypotetic races similar to Tasman Cup in Australia. The hill in point 1 (on the map) should have been excavated, so wonderful natural tribunes would have been created. First section of the main straight would have been flat, then in the last section it would have been uphill up to mid of first bend (point 2 on the map), the highest point of the circuit. Then downhill up to point 3. The hairpin at point 3 would have been very slow, so possibly it would have been eliminated. Pits would have been along main stright, but opened in opposite direction and lower than the track. Inauguration was scheduled before end of 1969.
