PALM BEACH SHORES
Description The first motor race of any kind in 1950 was an American Sports car event held on January 3rd at Palm Beach, organized by SCCA over an interesting two-mile island circuit.
Motor Racing Circuits Database and The GEL Motorsport - Tracks Around The World reports a circuit at Palm Beach, California. I don’t know if it is the same circuit with wrong location (I don’t know any Palm Beach in California, but I could be wrong) or if they are two different circuits
