NEW ORLEANS (1991)
SORRY, SOME DATA ARE NOT TRANSLATED YET
Description Street circuit used by IMSA for Gran Prix du Mardì Gras 1991. It was located in a business area in Nort West downtown, very close to the lake, along Canal Street, Poydras Street and some more streets. It’s very difficult to see on the aerial photo. First proposal, dated 1990 (see first map), was slighly different, but it was abandoned in Autumn 1990 because it should have advanced too much in residential area.
