Circuito Novo - Pequeno Circuito de Carmona - Circuito de Algodão

New circuit
Description Start/finish line was very close to the Church (what one?), close to Liceu Nacional Salazar. The circuit went on left on Rua Capitão Pereira? (rua do Governo), then it had two right corners towards Colégio Infante Sagres and it went down to Casa Diocesana, going in font of the Hospital and Colégio das Madres. After Casa Diocesana thare was a round about (where there was also road to airport), then it climbed a little and there was a right corner and the bend that is shown in this photo.
