TUSHINO / ТУШИНО
Description The first project of a Soviet F1 circuit appeared in 1964-65. It was researched in Moscow Auto and Road Institute (MADI). According to this project, the track should be built on the flood-lands of the Skhodnya river in Moscow. About 100 hectars of them were available to build a circuit, and high 35-metre slopes of the valley were very good as stands. There were more then twenty alternative designs of the circuit proposed, all with the track height from 16 to 20 metres, large boxes area, stands for 150000 spectators, the hotel for 5000 people, restaurants, and the Central Automotoclub building. Naturally, this project turned out to be too expensive, and nobody really wanted to build such a circuit.
