Interlagos Test II

In some weekends most all owners of expensive motorcicles in Sao Paulo go to the Interlagos Circuit to test their machines in the only track that they can do it here.


Autódromo José Carlos Pace is the venue of the Formula One Brazilian Grand Prix, located in a suburb of the city of São Paulo. It's still widely known by its former name, Interlagos. The neighbourhood is also known as Interlagos, from its proximity to the circuit.

The traditional name of the circuit (literally, "between lakes") comes from the fact that it was built in a region between two large artificial lakes, Guarapiranga and Billings, which were built in the early 20th century to supply the city with water and electric power. In the 1970s it was renamed to honor the then recently deceased Formula One driver José Carlos Pace. There is a kart circuit inside it named after Ayrton Senna.
