Description Circuit used for event of CzechoSlovakian F.3, sport and touring car championships between mid 1960s and mid 1980s (or in a shorter period inside this time slice). It should have been a combination of city streets and public roads. Also used as " Činovský okruh" for Special Stage 1 of international Rally Šumava nowadays.
there were plans to turn this circuit into a permanent one, but they had not enough money and
determination, so it was never developed
