BRA - BRAZIL
BRASÍLIA (NELSON PIQUET / WALTINHO FERRARI)
Not to be confused with Brasília (1962) - Brasília (1966÷1970)
Description Road permanent track. This map is updated end of 1989, when this circuit - till then used for Formula 3 and Tourism Gr. A races - was proposed to host 1990 F.1 Brazil GP. For this reason facilities were renewed (boxes, ....), but I think without changing track layout. In 1996 car track was named after Nelson Piquet. Thanks to Leomar Nestor Teichmann who gave me correct track length; Autosprint track length is wrong and I write it here only as historical note
