ARUBA MOTORSPORTS COMPLEX
Description In 1999 a new permanent circuit was announced at Aruba. It should have fulfilled FIA standards for F.1. It should have been ready within September 2000 and the first gare was scheduled on November 2000: the last race of BF Goodrich Tires Trans-Am serie. Last race of Indy Light championship was scheduled here too on December 2000, as well as first race of ALMS (American Le Mans Series) 2001 championship, on March 3rd 2001. The project was carried on by Bermello, Ajamil and Partners, the same group who worked at Homestead Motorsport Complex (Florida, USA). This track was never built
