Jičín, Cena Prachovských
Description Also known as Cena Prachovskych skal (Prachov Rocks prize), I found out there was a race there as early as 1952. Racing finished in 1976, when it became impossible to organize a race there on such long circuit. Very dangerous track, numerous poles, houses, fences, trees, holes were all around the narrow 14,5 km road.

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)
