XIJIAO LAOSHAN
SORRY, SOME DATA ARE NOT TRANSLATED YET
Description ermanent circuit built in 1926 (!) and used for military drills. In 1982 there were some rumors about a F.1 GP to be raced in China within 1984. Domenica del Corriere (an Italian important magazines, but not about motor racing) wrote at beginning of 1983 (March?) that some renovation works were done and they linked them to the possible GP. Actually, the circuit is unfit for F.1 because it’s very nervous, with tight corners and very short straights. Maybe Japanese were interested for racing here an Asiatic Championship F.2 race and works were done maybe for this reason.
