SAN PANCRAZIO
Description This kart track is very close to Parma and this area recently has been declared suitable for building. Track owners have decided to sell the site for building factories. It seemed that track would have been closed very soon, and for this reason no titled races have been scheduled in 2005. Recently a new agreement have been signed and definitive closing has been delayed on December 31st 2008.
In USA has been built GoPro Motorplex, a kart track which layout is based on San Pancrazio circuit.

San Pancrazio
Description On Monday April 19th 1976 new long circuit was opened at San Pancrazio. It’s 1200 m long, 8 m wide and it can be used by up to 36 karts at a time. SInce then the track is quite unchanged, even if chicane have been used in different ways. I presume (but I have no evidence) that links drawn in blue on 1985 map end missing in 1976 one were already there and simply not drawn in the older map; 2004 map is drawn looking at an aerial photo
