Langa Langa

Due to technical problems, temporarily it’s no longer possible to see the circuits on Google Maps embedded in the current page.
This feature will be restored as soon as I figure out how to do (any help would be appreciated!)

See this track layout with Google Maps - Google Earth - milermeter.com
(Google Maps and milermeter.com can bee used in your browser, without installing anything; Google Earth is a program that must be installed in your computer)
(Map shown here above can show at the same time all eventual layouts drawn. If you want to see only some of them, please go to Google Maps or Google Earth, by clicking on its own link)


Latitude - Longitude: - 0°30'45", + 36°22'10"
If the aerial photo is not visible, you have to zoom out by clicking (maybe more then once) button ’-’ in top left corner
