LORDELO DO OURO
Description Description (in Portoguese): Descrizione del circuito (in portoghese): «Partida e meta junto ao Clube Fluvial Portuense. Fazia um S esquerda-direita em direcção ao Bairro da Pasteleira/Liceu Francês. Contornava por inteiro o dito bairro (passava portanto na subida nas traseiras do Jardim de Serralves) e no cimo virava à esquerda em direcção ao campo desportivo. Virava à esquerda de novo passando junto à primeira das torres de tijolo do segundo bairro da Pasteleira. Novo S esquerda-direita em direcção à zona da "Varanda da Barra".

Passava pela frente deste restaurante e fazia novo S direita-esquerda para uma rua mesmo por cima da marginal onde circula o eléctrico e onde há diversas moradias. Descia para o Fluvial, curva à esquerda e de novo recta da meta.»

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 Earth - milermeter.com
(milermeter.com can be 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)
