BOGOTÁ, AUTÓDROMO MEJÍA
SORRY, SOME DATA ARE NOT TRANSLATED YET
Description CircuitoCircuito collinare progettato sulla falsariga di Ontario da architetti statunitensi e con la consulenza dell’ing. Bacciagaluppi. La pista è considerata estremamente sicura (per l’epoca): ai lati ci sono due fasce di 12 m - 39 ft, armcos and nets. Curiously, it’s perfectly symmmetric, so direction was not defined. Two opening races, F.2 events held on February 7th and 14th, were scheduled one in one direction and the other in the opposite one in order to decide which was the best one. The target was to host F.1 events: a non championship race in 1973 and a championship one in 1973. Of course none of them was never raced. I have no more info
Today only some section of the track are still visible, as the other ones have been built over
