Description Since 1980 there were rumors about a F.1 GP at Moscow, on a street track. There had been many proposals; the one shown on my map is dated June 1982 and it is about a possible GP to be raced in July or August 1983. Initial proposal was about a track approx 4 km long, but Mr.Ecclestone suggest to lengthen it up to 5-6 km, in order to have more room for sponsors banners. Map shown here is much longer, but I don’t know what it shows.
Some weeks later a date was decided for this GP (August 22nd 1983), but in September 1982 this GP was canceled. However, in following years there had been some more rumors about a Moscow GP, even if it was never raced.
