ASTI
Not to be confused with Asti (1926)
Description Street track used from 1946 to 1947.
My map shows 2 km layout, probably used un 1946. I have a photo (on Ruoteclassiche) that shows 1947 starting grid, teken in Corso Alla Vittoria (more or less where I took photo No.3), but in contrary direction.
Some motorbikes event were held on May 14th 1950 and May 31st 1953, but I don’t know if track layout was the same or not

This circuit has abandoned more than 50 years ago. This is the only red single seater I could see here! (to be precise, I took this photo near photo 7)Start/finish straight. White house in background is on the corner between Piazza Vittorio Alfieri (left, outside this photo) and Corso Alla Vittoria (Victory Street; right)Corso Alla Vittoria (Victory Street; right)Corso Alla Vittoria (Victory Street). Now is divided into two halves: left one (used by car driving towards camera) is aligned with previous section (shown on photo No. 2). I don’t know anything about 1940s layout.
In 1947 starting grid was here, but race direction was towards camera, opposite than 1946.

Junction between Corso Galileo Ferraris (left, ouside this photo) e Corso Luigi Einaudi (straight on this photo). I don’t think that in 1940s there was grass in foreground in the middle of the junction.... On the right (behind trees): Campo del Palio (Palio’s Square)Corso Luigi Einaudi. This photo was taken on the grass seen in previous photo, near big metallic pole. On the right (behind trees): Campo del Palio (Palio’s Square)Corso Luigi Einaudi: bend around Campo del Palio (Palio’s Square) cornerCampo del Palio (Palio’s Square), usually used as a parking
