Circuito di Crema
Description Distinctive points are listed in random order. Discesa (Descent) of Rubbiano and Coste di Credera were in the furthest section of the circuit from the city (and probably also from the start/finish line).
I don’t know if track layout was changed from 1921 to 1940.

Description Probable reconstruction of the circuit used at least on Sunday June 18th 1967 for 25th Circuito di Crema (Crema Circuit). I guess it is the same as the layout of the 26th (and last) edition held in 1968, but I don’t know when it was used for the first time, maybe already with the 17th edition in 1946?

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!)
