Schottenring
Description At beginning of 1970s (probably in 1971) a new circuit was proposed, that should have replaced the old obsolete one by that time. My map shows proposal dated 1973 that includes a main track and 5 secondary ones. 40 boxes, tribunes for 250,000 spectators and facilities for the circuit and some more sports are planned.
