Lombardore
Description At beginning of 1973 construction of a circuit at Lombardore seemed quite sure: it seemed there were no economical, politics nor bureaucratic problems. Autosprint published second map shown here one month after the first one. At beginning of Spring 1973 works for marking out the track begun: they marked 400 m of main straight in front of the pits, first right corner and following straight up to Frisca torrent. Within the end of 1973 all fields should have been bought and marking out of the track should have been completed. Later, a lengthen up to 6 km - 3.7 mi and new sporting facilities were already scheduled. I don’t know why the ciruit was built only as an autocross track.
