VIGASIO MOTOR CITY, VENETO
Description A regional law dated 1999 in Veneto finances construction of a new circuit log at least 3.5 km. This is the list of 13 proposals::
In January 2001 was chosen the best proposal. Final list is: 1. Vigasio-Trevenzuolo (togheter), 2. Montecchio Maggiore, 3. Cavarzere, 4. Bovolone, 5. Zevio and so on. Of course only the best one should receive public money and the track should be built within 4 years.
Today (November 2003) I think they haven’t made any work yet.

In 2007-2008 this proposal went on again. An official website was opened on April 15th 2008, so I think that soon works will start. On May 20th 2009 an official presentation was made

2009 preliminary proposal
Description On May 20th 2009 the project was officially presented. It should have a permanent circuit approx 4.8÷5 km long, a semi-temporary one, the latter approved even for Formula 1 (FIA Grade 1 approval) and some shorter courses. Track layout is still a preliminary draft and final layout could be quite different for layout and similar for logistics.
