Description Permanent circuit designed by Sandro Rocci (who had already worked at Jarama), to be built in a mountainous area in Isle of Tenerife. Because of its climate, it would have been a perfect circuit to be used in winter, for tests and hypotetic races similar to Tasman Cup in Australia. Section between point 2 and 3 (see on the map) would have been flat, while other section are undulating: main straight starts downhill, section in front of pits is flat and it ends slightly uphill. After point 1 the uphill is harder. If some more ground would have been available, first bend could have been even wider. Inauguration was scheduled before end of 1969. It was never been built.
