RICCIONE
Not to be confused with Riccione (minimoto 250 m) - Riccione (minimoto 500 m) - Riccione, Circuito dell’Adriatico
Description Street circuit, used for motorbike races until 1971. Description is very brief and it says that the circuit went on promenade from Porto Canale to Piazzale San Martino and back: I don’t know if it was as I show on my map or if it was different; moreover I don’t know if in previous years a different track layout was used. On April 4th 1971 (after one week delay because of rain) it hosted 28th Circuito Internazionale Perla Verde dell’Adriatico - 2° Trofeo Gulf (28th International Circuit Green Pearl of Adriatic Sea - 2nd Gulf Trophy), a race of Italian Seniores motorbikes championship. During this rain, a tragic accident occurred to Angelo Bergamonti; this meant the end of this street circuit and similar ones in Rimini and Cesenatico
