Monsanto Park
-----------------
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.

Here is an update to the horizon, featuring the Rio Tejo at the pits hairpin.  This just missed getting into the final of Sergio's beautiful recreation of the Monsanto circuit of 1959.

Hi, three points to make.  I don't post much because I don't have much to say.  But:
1.  Thanks Sergio and team (collectively & individually) for a new addition to my Interactive Motor Sports Encyclopedia (=GPL).
2.  Thanks anyone who has made anything.
3.  My apologies for not making a track.  I have all the tools, and have done a lot of research.  I just can't get past traces & walls... I just don't comprehend.  I even have some free time lately, but no excuse.

Great track,
Thanks to all,
Tosh
