Autódromo Oscar Cabalén
Description This circuit was first used on March 17th 1968 and closed in 1992 due to bad condition of the paving. Oreste Berta tested his own cars at Río Cuarto even if his factory is only 2.8 km far from Alta Gracia. I don’t know track length of other possible layouts drawn in blue on my map.
