F-Indy: Anhembi Circuit has the longest stretch of all Indy Championships

The route of the second annual São Paulo Indy 300, which will take place on May 1st, is considered one of the most demanding racetracks of 2011. The 4080-meter-long track, which runs through parts of the Sambadrome, Avenida Olavo Fontoura, and the Marginal Tietê (highway). 

The track has both sharp and wide curves, as well as long stretches of track that provide good points for cars to pass each other. The Reta dos Bandeirantes, or the Bandeirantes Stretch, which corresponds to the part of the track that involves the Marginal, is the longest part, at 1500 meters long – even longer than traditional high-speed oval circuits (such as the one in Indianapolis). In this stretch, the powerful cars of the race (those that have 3.5-liter V8 engines and that generate about 650 horsepower) can reach up to 300 km/h – a high speed for a race involving city streets. Be sure to check out the race on May 1st!
