Gutiérrez on board the Velociudad Simulator

Velociudad´s newest Brand Ambassador, Mexican Formula One driver Esteban Gutierrez visited Populous and took a drive the simulator around the 4.7 km circuit currently under construction in Argentina .

“It was great to visit the architects and learn more about the circuit from the people whom have designed and carried out this vision first hand. I enjoyed testing the circuit on the professional simulator, as it gave me the opportunity to provide some feedback as well”.

Following the race weekend in Silverstone, Gutierrez and his team visited the London offices of sports architectural firm Populous, the lead designer of Velociudad´s FIA Grade 1 motorsport facility in Buenos Aires.

“The design is very interesting given the drastic changes in topography which the circuit features. Undoubtedly the multiple combination of high speed corners where what I liked the most about the track. It is difficult to compare it with other circuits around the world; I think it´s quite original in that respect”.

Working alongside with the London based architectural practice Populous, responsible for the recent Silverstone renovations and the Dubai Autodrome, the venue will reflect no less than the work of the best minds in sports architecture.

Velociudad is a facility which allows drivers of all levels, from amateurs to professionals, to enjoy the passion of racing. “A project of the likes of Speedcity Buenos Aires in Latin America will boost the regional level of motorsport” states Gutierrez. “From a business standpoint it attracts a diverse community of users, that is what will make it work”.
