LACENO
Description Proposal for transforming the recent (in 1971....) road around Piano Laceno in a 90% semipermanent circuit suitable also for F.1. For safety reason, track layout is a little changed from original street Provincial Road SP 368. Piano Laceno is at 1050 m above sea level and in Winter is often covered in snow.
In 1972 works for building the road were going on, but AC Avellino (Automobil Club Avellino) and CSAI objected to its transformation into a semipermanent circuit: it would have been too fast and too far away. I don’t think this circuit was ever finished, but on aerial photos available on Portale Cartografico Nazionale you can see some minor roads that seems to be abandoned track section under construction (green on second map).
