Description Permanent circuit suitable up to Formula 2 proposed at the end of 1981. It should have been a circuit without any difference in level and with wide run off areas. Main straight should have been 500 m long, but it could have been lengthened up to 700 m for dragster events. The only problem for its realization come from a law that prevent the constructon of a new circuit if there is another one less the 200 km far: in this case, Nogaro is closer. I have no more info.
