A lap at the old Brno Circuit
A photo tour around the very first version of the "Masaryk Circuit", near the city of Brno in the Czech Republic, by Herman Liesemeijer. We will follow the 18.109 Miles long red course on the map above.
The pit exit.
The first corner should have been somwhere here. Because they constructed a new motorway here this site have been changed dramatically.
After a detour we arrive at this peacefull country road.
We turn right around the restaurant in the village of Kohoutovice.
One of the many corners in this twisty part of the track trough the rolling landscape.
Full throttle over the intersection!
We arrive at Žebětín.
We turn right on the junction.
And we're climbing above.
Here we pass the new circuit.
Some of the many corners at this great section of the track. Unfortunately this section was also difficult to photograph.
At the inside of this hairpin, the last from an almost endless series of corners, is a kart track on the inside today!
We'r arrived in the village of Ostrovačice, the farest point of the circuit...
From here we drive back to Brno.
This is the beginning of the fastest section of the circuit!
The right kink was constructed later to connect a new road. The original course was going straight and still reachable when you turn left here...
And here we are at the best conserved part of the old track. Looks like time have stand still here...
Imagine how it was when te Mercesses and Auto Unions where drifting through this corner!
Original the straight continued here, but the old road had to make place for a new motorway. The road on the left hand was constructed later to connect some farmhouses.
After a detour we arrive at this part with bricks. In the old day's a big part of the street circuit was paved with these bricks!
A few Miles further there's asphalt again.
The section from Ostrovačice back to Brno was the fastest part of the track with long straghts and some very fast kinks.
At high speed through the village of Bosonohy, the last village before the start/finish area.
And here we're back at start/finish.
