I'm going to say it's Argentina or something.
I think you are onto something there. It must be a Spanish speaking country, since I can see "Autonida" written on one of the cars.

Somewhere like Comodoro Rivadavia (Autódromo General San Martín)?

Did they sell Capris in Argentina? I know they sold in volume in the US. Maybe Mexico?
South Africa was a big market for them but that is RHD.

It's none of the countries mentioned so far. Try to stick to the language.

You nailed it!

This is the start/finish straight of the Autodromo de Luanda in Angola. I found the picture in the Facebook group "Portugal Automobilismo"

These concrete slabs (is that what you'd call them?) on the inside of the corner are irritating me.

My first guess was Schleizer Dreieck.




Watching the third onboard video on YT (after Schleiz and Frohburg) I think I accidentally found the track. :blush:
