Curacao Formula Race Track

Did you guys know that Curacao is last after Monaco for Formula 1 and 3000 races? We drive everyday on through the track which is our highway around and in to Willemstad our City (Capital). I will post the total Miles and pics of the track. In 1985 John Nielsens won the Formula 3000 race in a Ralt.

It does. Some of the curves allows only one car to go through. You know the highway leads to a brigde which is higher than P&O Legend of the Seas cruise ship. All exit to dowtown runs down next to the harbour and when you look of the cliff is water. There is where the race cars go down the course and back up the course.

Sounds like a hell of a track, does it have a website? If you haven't yet, check out 'Keith's Nuerburgring Nordschleife' online. The 'Ring' used to be called the King of all race tracks, and with a toltal lenght of apx. 20 miles was considered the most demanding track in the World. Cheerio, Teutone (aka Horst K)
