Autodromo Interlomas History

The Autódromo Interlomas was once the premier racing facility in Chile, hosting top categories of racing in the region, including the famous SudAm F3 Championship. The track opened in 1996 near the capital of the Araucania Region, Temuco, and was the brainchild of local racing enthusiasts who worked tirelessly to bring their ideas to reality.

With a fast and flowing layout that is somewhat reminiscent of Australia’s Phillip Island circuit, the 10-corner circuit quickly became a favorite among drivers. The circuit boasts grandstands with a capacity for 7,000 spectators, and the wooded surroundings make for an attractive environment to enjoy the racing action. A professional karting facility can also be found near the main circuit entrance.

While the pit facilities are fairly basic, with tin-roofed pit garages that hark back to an earlier era, the three-storey control tower provides a more modern approach with VIP hospitality areas, press rooms, and race control.

Despite financial constraints that have limited the ability to keep pace with international racing safety standards, the Autódromo Interlomas maintains a busy national and local racing calendar. The main TC 2000 touring car category and the national Superbike championship are regular visitors to the circuit. One of the seasonal highlights is the Tres Horas de Interlomas endurance race, which often boasts a large grid of modified production cars.

While the Autódromo Interlomas has been overtaken by the more modern Codegua circuit in recent years, it still maintains an active calendar of local and national events. For racing enthusiasts, the Autódromo Interlomas offers a unique and thrilling racing experience in an attractive wooded setting.
