Editor Note I : I used some mips, 3dos and srb files from other's tracks. Full credit to their authors.
First race in this area was a hillclimb raced in 1910 on a section 1506 m - 0.938 mi long of Estrada de Pimenteira. Even there were more than 30000 spectators, this event was hosted only two more times, in 1913 and 1922. Serra de Monsanto (= Holy Hill) street track was used from 1953 to 1959 and it used also a section of Lisbon-Cascais motorway. In 1959 it was a little shortened, but I don't know what changes were made. It hosted Portugal GP in 1954, 1957 (both for Sportscar) and 1959 (F.1). It was a dangerous circuit even according to 1950s standard because it was very bumby and uneven.
From 1961 to 1971 a shorter circuit was used, known as Monte Claros, because it was not possible to stop the traffic for a weekend on the motorway.
In 1980 there were rumors about a remake of the track in order to host a Portugal F.1 GP in 1982.
