This one is a real candidate for worlds most exciting circuit. The Lago Potrero de los Funes circuit was constructed in 1987 in the confines of an extinct volcano crater, and resurrected in 2008 to host an FIA GT race. Located 8.7 miles from San Luis, capital city of the San Luis Province, in Argentina, the circuit is semi-permanent, utilising the 3.896 mile long ring road that encircles the lake. As a driving challenge, the circuit receives very high praise from drivers thanks to its undulations and numerous high speed flowing bends.
Fabrizio Gollin, Corvette C6R driver said of the circuit: "The track is unbelievable, I think it's one of the best tracks in the world. The only thing is it's completely new so there is only one good line. Off-line is very slippery."
CEO of SRO Motorsports Group, Stephane Ratel, visited the circuit in 2008 when GT racing first set its sights on Lago Potrero de los Funes. He said: “My first impressions on seeing this circuit are that it is in a very unique and special location. The circuit’s redevelopment means it is now one of the most impressive circuits in the world and it is the perfect place for the glamorous world of GT racing to come to.”
