    So, my eyes aren't deceiving me? Once apon a time Interlagos was [run as] "Sogalretni"? Also, impressive city development, even for several decades worth.

    I didn't know there was an original different layout! I think it looks better. Wouldn't it be great if there was a game that concentrated on all these original layouts.

    Looks like they had an oval layout at Interlagos too using the outer edges of this older layout (which are now used as the perimeter/service roads) the turns of which were only slightly banked, which must have been quite hairy to drive especially as some of them must have been approached from some fairly steep inclines.

    Here's some other pictures from older races at Interlagos

    Formula 3 and formula 2/Atlantic perhaps from some time in the 60's

    *edit* i couldn't figure out whereabouts on the track these first two were taken but i think they're part of the old circuit, showing the run to 'ferradura' before it joins the existing circuit and runs in the opposite direction back down towards what is now called 'descida do lago' as shown in the 1970's/contempory photo higher up on this page.

    This may be from the inaugural race in 1940(?)

    This is from about 1980.

    There is, and it's called Automobilista ;)



    The old layout is every bit as crazy to drive as it looks. It's almost like the old Monza with shallower banking and more hairpins :crazy:

    So has the inner lake been reclaimed? I know it's the "Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace" but it taxes the definition of Interlagos ("Between lakes") if there's only one lake. ;)

    Seems to be just the one left. There used to be one on the inside of what is now Descida do Lago, as well as the outside, but the inside one seems to be gone.

    And a scan from a book.

    The one on the top left is still there, the one on the right isn't.

    first time I've seen this thread, and I'm loving it.
    Some great old pictures :tup:

    I thought I would share one of my old photos, I hope it's OK for this style of thread.

    This is a photo of my parents 2nd drag car in 1986. (I'm the baby) I'm now 32 years old IMG_0039.jpg


    And here's my parents 3rd drag car, not 100% sure what year but again I'm the little boy at the front.

    Nice timing with the photo as well with the e-type jag in the back ground because the hot rod had a V12 jag engine in it.

    Which one was fastest? Did any of them hit over 200mph?

    The green hot rod was the fastest, none of them got to 200mph.
    For memory the hot rod got to 150mph.

    But this one did, 212mph

    If you look on the rear wing you can even see my name as I painted the car

    I know that’s a 1984 Brabham-BMW but have no idea about that growth on the nose.
    Surely it’s not a radiator :odd:

    Oil cooler it was. Maybe helped reliability of the turbo, but burned poor Nelson's feet at Canada.

    That makes a lot more sense than my original theory, that it was for cooling the cockpit, which would be handy in the 40C heat of Dallas.

    Dallas, 1984 - I was there! I had a truly great seat and could see a large portion of the track. Many great drivers blotted their copybook that day. I remember seeing Nelson stuffing his Brabham in a hole in the wall, and Nigel collapsing in a heap as he tried and failed to push his car across the finishing line. Keke and René Arnoux both distinguished themselves by canny, heads-up drives in the blazing Texas sun. Poor Martin Brundle broke both ankles in a practice crash, leaving him permanently injured.

    Has a Formula One designer ever made a comfort consideration for their drivers? ;)

    It reminds me of how the indent on all our skulls look, where our noses normally are. The fact there is still a front wing there is surprising, considering it looks like the philosophy was to simply cut off whatever previous wing was on there.

    It looks a lot like it. I don't have any other details apart from the year.
