Track of The Month – November 2017

Interlagos, Brazil

This November, the Track of the Month is the brilliant Brazilian circuit of Interlagos. Situated in Sao Paulo, this 2.7 mile circuit has been a challenge for both car and driver, since it’s inception in 1940.

Through its many iterations, Interlagos has been able to maintain its high-speed corners, as well as the undulating track layout and bumpy road surface. As such, Interlagos has been a mainstay on the Formula 1 calendar since 1990.

Have a look below at two-time Brazilian Grand Prix winner Mark Webber, as he gives us a flying lap of Interlagos

Crowning of a Champion

This years’ race in Brazil will be the penultimate race of the 2017 Formula 1 World Championship, and by the end of the season, 1 driver shall stand alone at the top; Lewis Hamilton.

Already crowned as world champion with 2 races remaining, Hamilton has had to show all of his talent to thwart the efforts of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, the closest challenger over the course of the season. The racing has been intense, and in some situations too intense, with momentum swinging between the two drivers over the course of the season.

A showing of form late in the season from the Red Bull team, and with the challenge from Ferrari unlikely to fade next year, we are already looking forward to a great 2018 season, where Lewis Hamilton will surely be the man to beat.

We hope you enjoy this fantastic circuit and the cars we have chosen!
