Rimini
Description On March 21st 1971 it hosted its last race, 5° Circuito Internazionale Riviera di Rimini - Trofeo Api (5th International Circuit Coast of Rimini - Api Trophy), a motorbike race. Layout shown on my map is only an hypotesis, it could be wrong. According to «Stadio» streets used are the following ones: Lungomare Vittorio Emanuele (I was not able to identify it; probably this is the old name of Lungomare Claudio Tintori and Lungomare Augusto Murri. Note that Lungomare means Promenade) - Viale Caio Duilio - Viale Flavio Gioia - Viale Duca d’Aosta - Viale Duca degli Abruzzi (unlikely, as it is very far, in an area outside my map. I think probably it should be Viale Antonio Beccadelli) - Viale Amerigo Vespucci - Lungomare Vittorio Emanuele. As you can notice, the name of the streets just before promenade is missing. In 2003 I try to ask to organizers of the parade and they told me that they didn’t know the original layout, but probably it went up to Piazza Tripoli or maybe also Via Giovanni Pascoli. I have no more info, neither I know if the same layout was used over the years or if it was changed.

On November 2015 Riccardo Ghinelli sent me a mail: "The circuit you show in your website is quite correct; the only mistake is that after Lungomare Tintori motorbikes used the roundabout in anti clockwise direction. I remember it because it was one of the most spectacular and challenging spot of the circuit. I confirm that the circuit went back on the promenade at Piazza Tripoli (now Piazza Alberto Marvelli). Direction was anticlockwise. Start/finish line was on Lugomare Tintori, more or less at number 41, known as Hotel Reseda (now Google Maps reports there "La piada e il mare"). Pits were under hotel porche. As I remeber, circuit layout was never changed during the years
