Circuito di Monte Mario
Description Circuit used for per il Reale Premio Roma (Rome Royal Prix) from February 22nd to 27th, last days of Carnival. Start/finish line was on Viale delle Milizie, then it went to Monte Mario uphill, custom barrier, then up to Camilluccia up to via Cassia, then back down to Piazzale di Ponte Milvio, Vialone Angelico and back to Viale delle Milizie.
Works to Tiber manifold begun in 1925 made the circuit unpassable in some points and so it was never used again.

Circuito di Monte Mario
Description I have been reported an article by mondocorse.com (in Italian) with description of Monte Mario circuit in Rome. It was used in 1925 for motorbike races. According to description I draw this map, but it seems to be completely wrong. The most unknown sections are Piazza Risorgimento section (I’m honest: I had to guess it!) and close to Piazzale Clodio: possibly the circuit climbed on the hill on Panoramica, that should be the street now named viale Giovanni Falcone e Paolo Borsellino and Viale dei Cavalieri di Vittorio Veneto (both out of my map) before going down on Circonvallazione Clodia.

Description It seems that there had been some races at Monte Mario even in 1949, but I have no more info and possibly the circuit could have been completely different.
