Track of The Month – November 2019
Interlagos – Brazil
This November, Interlagos is The Race Centre’s Track of the Month.
Opened in 1940, Interlagos is a fast sweeping track with tight turns mixed in for some great racing. The track has gone through many different changes to its layout after drivers complained it was too dangerous. With Interlagos being the penultimate race in the formula 1 calendar it can lead to great racing and amazing comebacks by the likes of Ayrton Senna and Jenson Button.
Interlagos is one of the most challenging tracks on the circuit with its large altitude changes and sharp braking zones. This will provide a great sense of speed and require careful control of the car to get a perfect lap.
We hope that you enjoy the challenge and excitement of Interlagos this month at The Race Centre.
See below for an onboard lap of Interlagos with a 2017 McLaren driven by Fernando Alonso in the 2017 F1 season.
We hope you enjoy this fantastic circuit and the cars we have chosen!
