CALDAS
SORRY, SOME DATA ARE NOT TRANSLATED YET
Description It seems that first proposal for a circuit at Caldas was made in 1973, but I have no more info nor track map. In 1982 there was (an other) proposal for built a permanent circuit in Cataluña. In Spring 1982 they were looking for money, they were working at a enviromental impact evaluation and at road plan. Inauguration was at first scheduled in 1983, then in 1984. In 1985 another project was proposed, nut it was not developed and the circuit was built some years later at Montmeló with a completely different layout. I have no more info.
