KEIMOLA / KÄINBY
SORRY, SOME DATA ARE NOT TRANSLATED YET
Description First permanent circuit ever built in Finland. Its construction begun in 1965 on a level area on the initiative of Mr. Lincoln, a former driver, wood exporter and Rindt’s father-in-law. The circuit was opened in 1966, even if it was still under construction. In 1970 - still unfinished and heavvily indebted - it was sold to Mr. Wihuri, that decided to finish it by adding to bankings inspired to Monza Curve Alta Velocità. I don’t think they were never built. The circuit was closed in 1978.
