SORRY, SOME DATA ARE NOT TRANSLATED YET
Description Second permanent Finnish circuit, after Keimola. It is in an undulating site and it has steep gradient and so it’s an interesting track. Its construction started in 1967, done by local Autoclub. In 1970 an extension was proposed, 1000 - 1500 m (0,62 - 0,93 mi) longer than the existing track: it should have had two tunnels. I think this proposal was not developed because of debts. I don’t know what eventual changes were made in its history; my map shows 1988 layout.
