Autódromo Municipal José Carlos Pace
Description After some accidents at Curva do Cafè (including Gustavo Sondermann’s fatal one occurred on April 3rd 2011) a new chicane was projected in order to slow down the speed at least during National events. At mid July 2011 newspapers told that.... the chicane was built swapping enter and exit, so it is unusable. On August 3rd 2011 the new reprofiled chicane was inaugurated. After F.1 GP scheduled on November 27th 2011 run off area should be extended.
