The FIA GT championship raced on the Circuito Potrero de los Funes in San Luis, Argentina for the first time this year for the final round of the 2008 FIA World GT Championship, and frankly this is the most amazing circuit ive ever seen, except for Mount Panorama, but im Aussie, so yeah.
In San Luis, the circuit sweeps through the Argentinian countryside past small villages, showing some reminiscence to spa in the early days. The gorgeous 6.27km circuit climbs and drops, featuring many punishing corners with concrete walls lined around. There is even a massive lake in the middle.
Argentina last had a Grand Prix in 1998, but now the last remaining race in South America is the Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos. With the amount of emerging Formula one stars from South America, Circuito Potrero de los Funes could be another race in South America. Footage shows a great amount of overtaking, something Formula one lacks.
