PUTIGNANO
SORRY, SOME DATA ARE NOT TRANSLATED YET
Description This was a proposal made by A.C. (Automobile Club) Bari on December 1965 for a permanent circuit in Puglia. Proposal was approved and on April 1st 1967 its construction begun. In 1969 70% of the track and 30% of facilities were built and within one year the first race could have been held. Unfortunately Putignano Comune (circuit’s owner) had an economical and political crisis and in 1970 all works, still unfinished, were stopped because of lack of money. Since then, several trials were carried out, but it wasn’t possible to finish track construction. Two sources reports two different maps, probably with reference to two different steps of the proposal, but I have no more indo. Now it’s still possible to see what is was built from aerial photos.
