USA - UNITED STATES
NEW ORLEANS SUPERDOME (1992÷1995)
Description After some complaints arose after 1991 edition, from 1992 to 1995 (included) IMSA races were moved 1 km - 0.62 mi West, in Astrodome area. There were some more complaints, because some important streets were closed for the race. In 1995 the race was moved from June to October, as final event of the championship, in order to avoid usual hot temperature, but it was not enough to save the race: 1995 edition was the last. It’s very difficult to see the circuit on the aerial photo
