General San Martín - Circuito 2
Description Street circuit used at list for Gran Premio Internacional Yacimentos Petroliferos Fiscales on February 6th 1966. I don’t know if start/finish line was in the same position as in 1956, neither if direction was again anticlockwise. Moreover, I don’t know if this layout has been used some more times, surely at least in 1956 a longer one was used.
