ALMIRANTE BROWN
Description Circuit used for motorcycle, sidecar and car races.
It was mostly unpaved and rural, crossed some inhabited centers and had some short asphalted sections.
The indicated length is approximated because at that time it was not measured accurately and different sources reported different lenght. Moreover, possibly current configuration of those roads is slightly chenged from the one of the time.
It was closed due to the Buenos Aires Province decree of April 1933 (effective May 1st, 1933) which banned street racing of cars, motorcycles and bicycles.
