SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE (CEPSA-OFRA)
Not to be confused with Puerto de la Cruz (Ciudad Turística) - Santa Cruz de Tenerife (1968) - Tenerife (1968) - Tenerife (2006)
Description Forum (no longer available) wher I found info about this circuit probably was quite confused. It reported that Circuito de Puerto la Cruz had been used from 1965 to probably 1972, but it shows track layout of CEPSA-Ofra located in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Distance between two cities (Puerto de la Cruz and Santa Cruz de Tenerife) is approx 35 km - 22 mi and both hosted car races in that period.

Circuito CEPSA-Ofra
Description Street circuit used at least for 6th and 7th Premio de Tenerife on April 26th 1970 and May 2nd 1971. I don’t know if it had been used some more times, before and/or later. My unreliable sources reported it was used from 1965 to - probably - 1972, but I doubt it.

This feature will be restored as soon as I figure out how to do (any help would be appreciated!)
