São Paulo

2.536 mile circuit first used in 2010.

Above are two earlier proposed circuits which were not used - click on images to enlarge.

Located at the Sambadrome Anhembi, this circuit first held the São Paulo Indy 300 on the 14th March 2010. The painted surface of the Sambadrome proved problematic in practice for the race, so the paint had to be removed and the surface ground down with tiny grooves created. This worked, but created large clouds of dust despite heavy rainfall and surface washing.
