Formula 1 Brazilian Grand Prix
F1 official

Formula 1 in Brazil is more than just racing. There almost everyone knows about F1 more than any Motorsports fan in Europe. That is why the Grand Prix day at the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace is one of the most important days of the year.

I would like to note that the organization of the GP did the same company as in Mexico. And I cannot say that I am happy. There are a lot of questions about the schedule.

* This is the local time. Also don't forget the circuit opens at 6 AM!

Therefore, you have to catch a volunteer with a program of activities on the race track. I tried to find at least something, alas, no one word about Formula 1 events around. Once again, be sure to collect information on the track (for yourself and for your friends too)! 

Do not forget to come earlier, for an hour and a half, but only earlier! So, catch the contact details for coming and do not a mistakes.

Directions and map

The Interlagos Circuit is located in the southern region of São Paulo and the official address is
Ave. Senador Teotônio Vilela, 261, in the neighborhood of Interlagos – Sao Paulo, May – SP, MOBILE 04801-010.

By the way, there is a page with tips for tourists about the circuit on the official website, I think it will be useful too.


I'm agree with every point, and think you should know, too.
1. Sun. Autodrome is an open, there is a few places with shade. It is important to protect from sunlight. Use comfortable clothes and shoes.
2. Not just comfortable clothes, but is warm. The Speedway is located in the highest place of the neighborhood and Interlagos between two dams - Billings and Guarapiranga. In the late afternoon, usually makes a little cold. Therefore, always carry a sweater with you.
3. Not only warm clothes, but also for the weather. Because it is very unstable, so the official website advised to take an umbrella in case of rain! 

4. A sweet photo. It seems that this is the only one autodrome where you can take the camera officially and take a photo for Instagram or video for YouTube, fine!
5. Despite that you can take the camera, you need to take food. In some events at Autodrome no cafeterias; therefore, is important to take snacks and water. So sandwiches are required to be present in your bag!
Comfortable shoes, glasses umbrellas, sweater, food and early rise and, of course, good company, and your Brazilian motorsports weekend will be unforgettable! Be sure to tell me about your impressions on contact form.

The Interlagos Circuit represents the entire beginning of my passion for speed. It was at my grandmother's house, that lived by the the circuit, where the racing taste, began, and the first races that I´ve watched by the fence. I drove my first kart at the Kartódromo parking, because on Sundays the race track was closed. If you have a place I can talk about 'home race', this place is certainly the Interlagos Circuit. There are several special memories. One of then is the affection that I have always been welcomed during the 19 years that I´ve raced by the F1 here in Sao Paulo., and now with the Stock Car. It is always very special to be and run in Interlagos.”
