CARPI
Description III Circuito di Carpi (Carpi 3rd Circuit) was raced on June 12th 1927. It was a motorbike race on a street circuit 7500m long, that Gazzetta dell’Emilia (a local newsparer) described exactly like this:«Starting line was at Quartirolo, on Modena - Mantova provincial road, then Via Nuova Ponente, Via Provinciale Motta, Traversa S. Giorgio ant it went on Modena - Mantova provincial road». I tried to find on Carpi map these roads, but I only discovered that via Motta is the road from Carpi to Soliera and via Nuova Ponente is a road that cross the village from East to West, then renamed via Lenin and via Marx (for sure in 1927 they had different names). Probably Carpi streets were changed a lot after textile industries explosion, when new streets and bypasses were built, so I’m not sure that it’s possible to draw this circuit on a modern map.
Possibly the same circuit was used also for the first two editions and maybe also in following years
