Description Permanent circuit proposal that should have hosted Venezuela GP on November 15th 1992. It was proposed to Mr. Ecclestone at Australia GP 1989 by Alessandro Pippione, an Italian who had lived in Venezuela for many years. At Spain GP 1990 they begun to discuss for introducing this race in F.1 calendar. On July 3rd 1991 (my map is dated in this period) FISA give his OK to this proposal and in the same period first date was decided. Till then, I have no more news.
Circuit should have been named after Rafaele and Erminio Staccioli, father and uncle of Pippione’s wife, Ana Staccioli, owner of circuit area.
The circuit has a long straight, a section mixed fast and one slower.
