Derelict Keimola Motor Stadium

Located about 20 kilometers north of Helsinki, surrounded by thirty years growth of trees and bushes, is a motor stadium that saw its glory days in the end of the sixties and beginning of seventies. It hosted many Formula two races, with legends like Graham Hill, Jack Brabham and Jochen Rindt.

The stadium was abandoned in 1978, and no new development has taken place in the area. The track profile can still clearly be seen in satellite pictures: Google Maps satellite view of Keimola.

Visiting the place gives a cheap World without experience. No amount of asphalt and concrete is enough to keep nature from reconquering the area.
