Torremolinos Proposed Street Circuit (1980) designed by John Nichols RIBA

Torremolinos
Proposed Street Circuit (1980)

Direction - clockwise

The start/finish was in Avenida Mantillales. 

The cars would race towards the Congress Hall, turning right as they joined the Torremolinos bypass, racing down the very fast stretch to the La Colina Corner which would be a very slow corner. From there they would sweep through the curves, lined by eucalyptus trees on either side, go under the underpass, rising gently up hill to take a fast right-hander followed by a slightly slower left-hander, before having the brake for the Petrol Station Chicane on entering Torremolinos again. Cars would race pass the Bus Station, passing through the Plaza Costa del Sol., along part of Avenida Palma de Majorca., before having to brake fiercely to negotiate the tight right-hander Banco Jerez Corner, which would have an adverse camber and then climbing up Avenida Imperial with its sweeping bends, then into Avenida Mantilliales on to the short start/finish straight. For those cars that could not negotiate the Banco Jerez Corner there would be a sufficiently long run off area.
