Targa Florio
Description In Spring 1973 it was quite sure that 1973 Targa Florio would have been the last raced on the classical Circuito Piccolo delle Madonie 72 km - 44,6 mi long; then it would have been moved to a proposed permanent track. I don’t know if besides proposal shown on my map there was some more; however it was not developed because it was too expensive
