LIMEIRA
Not to be confused with Limeira (kart)
Description In 1976 Fittipaldi brothers decided to build a new factory for their Formula 1 team, Copersucar. As Ferrari with Fiorano, close to thier factory they wanted to build a proving ground 4.5 long approx., with slow and fast bends and a straight 1 km long approx. They wanted to finish all works within June 1977. I don’t know if they really did these works and if the track layout was changed or not.
