Description In autumn 1993 a new circuit, located near 1940s one, was proposed and it should have hosted Argentina GP 1994. This proposal wasn’t developed: F.1 went back to Argentina on 1995 but on traditional Oscar Galvez circuit. Streets are nearly all very wide )Avenita del Libertador has 12 lanes!) and few works should have done for preparing the circuit. For paddock and pits facilities of the close horse racetrack (garage included) should have been used.
