This is a weird one. It's a real track, but it's not yet finished and isn't likely to ever be finished.
I became aware of it through the guys at "The Smoking Tire" and "Drive" (Both excellent YouTube channels. Subscribe to them!
Anyway, they went on a road trip to Panama, had done all their homework, contacts and cars set up... but when they got there everything fell apart. So at one point, they go on Google Earth to see if there's any good roads or tracks, and they find this place.
Story goes, it was land owned by Panama's largest drug smuggler, and he was a race fan. So he took a few hundred acres and started to build a World Class Circuit. Then he got busted, went to jail, everything was seized, and they put 12 foot fences around the entire site.... and there it sits...
It's not hard to find, approx 8deg N, 79deg W, and you can see it online.
So, it "is" a real track, but we may never actually see it raced on in real life.
All I had to go off of was standard google elevation data etc... and aerial pictures. So I went to town on it.
