If you’re within a few miles of Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace, you are likely to hear the echoing roar of the engines as the racers zoom--counterclockwise--around the track. As the official home of the Brazilian F1 Grand Prix, the track has a rich history dating back to its construction in 1938 through to its current modernized form. A full calendar of events, including Super Kart Brazil, Superbike Series Brazil, and Formula Truck makes for a permanent electric atmosphere. The racecourse now officially carries the name of the local F1 hero Carlos Pace and is a true destination for racing fans. Even with little interest in motorsports, you will find it hard not to get caught up in the excitement of the track.

  • I already knew the racetrack of two F1 races, but this time I went to participate in a bike race, although I was in construction, I liked the structure, bleachers and clean toilets, flawless runway.

  • One of the best programs in the world. Watch live F1 in Interlagos. Sector the best view 70% of the circuit and guys I understood a lot of the subject. I've been 10 x in several sectors. In 91 the first X was the best. Ayrton Senna of Brazil only sixth gear. Just for the magician. Memorable.

  • The place itself is quite interesting. Here you can do more than attending motorsports events. There are areas for anyone to play different sports or go for a walk. It is also possible to do courses in here, so that is a plus. Don't expect, however, to find a comprehensive, beautiful structure because you will not be able to do that. Most of what is there is temporary, so getting food or a drink here is only possible when there is a big event. What really grinds my gears about this place is the appalling care and planning put in place whenever there is a large event like F1 or Lollapalooza. It gets messy, the traffic seems to be heavier than it should be or it is completely interrupted. I wish this place got to enjoy more care from the local authorities or it got sold so that people who actually know what they do can be put in charge.
  • So great you can get up and close to the race track when they are not having races.
