Dunaújváros
Description There was no diagram of the track’s layout, however I tried to recreate it by its description in the article. The article expicitly states the Vasmű út, Építők útja and Hunyadi János út path, which is the large triangle. The article further states and a picture shows, that the track passed in front of the main gate of the ironworks. This exists even today, it can be found at the left corner of the small rectangle on the map. This is why I added this part to the track’s layout. (This is actually the parking lot of the ironworks).

The race was held over 3 heats, each consisted of 12 laps.

It’s certain that the circuit’s direction was anticlockwise. The exact place of start/finish line is not mentioned, but judging by the order as the above roads are mentioned, I suppose it was somewhere on Vasmű út, the long straight on the right, going Northwards.

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!)
