SERRA VERDE
Description After being in use for 4 years only, on July 1st 2007 the kart track was closed because the ground was expropriated for building a new administrative center of Minas Gerais Government. Owners of the circuit decided to build a new track at Vespasiano, few km North.
In 2005 a circuit for cars was proposed, but I think the proposal was canceled for the same reason.
