USA - UNITED STATES
SAN JOSÉ (HP PAVILION)
Not to be confused with San José (County Fairgrounds) - San José (McEnery)
Description Proposed street circuit (there were at least 3 proposals quite similar between November 2004 and January 2005). It should have been in the parking and on the streets around HP Pavilion (a stadium). Main straight should have been in the parking, parallel to an existing tramline. Chicane at the end of W Santa Clara Street, before the last corner (only in first and second proposals; in the last one it was a 90° left corner), was just the entry in the parking. Likewise, the link between S Montgomery Street and Cahill Street (present in November proposal only) should have been on an exixting parking. It should have hosted ChampCar race scheduled on June 31st 2005. Because of high cost of realization, a couple of months before the race the organizators decided to move the race few blocks far and they create in a hurry the McEnery Center circuit.
