ITA - ITALY
PARMA, CITTADELLA
Description Street circuit, used at least on June 3rd 1934, probably for a motorbike race. I don’t know if it was used more times, before or after this race; but I know that on June 13th 1947 1st Circuito di Parma (car race) was raced on a 3 km circuit and it could be this one.
I’m not sure that the circuit was as shown on my map because I can’t locate exactly Istituto delle Missioni. I have no evidence that start/finish line was in Viale Umberto I and that direction was anticlockwise: these are my assumptions taken from track description. I have no more info.
