Parque Sarmiento
Description Street circuit used maybe at list for a Formula 3 race on March 1st 1964. I have no more info. In 1958-1963 another circuit was used, in Sarmiento Park as well.

Description by Aldo Pessina, from "Eco dello Sport" issued in Lugano (Switzerland), in an unknown day of March 1964 (translation is mine)
As suggested by its name, this circuit is in a park and it dominates the town and spectators have a wonderful view of Cordoba and La Pampa. Cordoba lies at the foot of the mountain and thanks to its dry climate we could appreciate high summer temperature. During the race, it was 41 °C (105 °F). This circuit, asphalted, is very tortuous and bounded by trees or high pavements. It is a circuit that put drivers to the test: the only relaxing section is short start/finish straight. It was also the more dangerous circuit (of Temporada 1964) because nearly everybody went off the road at at the end of the race damage to cars were huge. Also here, as at Rosario, police measures were not sufficient for protect spectators. They were lucky at Rosario, but at Cordoba there were many injured because of their passion for motor racing
