Circuito Corto
Short circuit
Description First proposal, still quite rough. There were two different track layouts, a "short" (more probable) and a "long" ones. Nevertheless, according to measure taken on aerial photos, both proposals are much longer than 4.1÷4.3 km, that is track length reported on presentation articles.
