Interlagos is a motor racing circuit named after the district in the city of Sao Paulo in Brazil where it is located. Also called the Autódromo José Carlos Pace, after a Brazilian Formula 1 driver, it is the home to the Formula One Brazilian Grand Prix. The Interlagos circuit has created some of the most exciting and memorable races in recent Formula One history, and is regarded as one of the most challenging and exciting circuits on the F1 calendar. There are several reasons for this, including the fact that the circuit is driven anti-clockwise, and it was not built on flat terrain, but follows the ups and downs of hilly ground, which places higher demands on the drivers and their vehicles.
* The Interlagos is manufactured using a highly advanced production technique called Rotary Forging. The rim of the wheels is forged at high pressure while the wheel is spun at high speed. This alters the molecular structure and enhances the strength of the alloy. The benefit is a much lighter weight than a regular cast wheel. Most importantly, the weight saving is in the outer rim of the wheel which dramatically reduces rotational mass and enhances vehicle performance.
