picture of the AVUS (probably from the late 70s/early 80s?) the entrance across the grandstands to the paddock is still to be built. also no Catchfences in the Nordkurve.

Pescara is where the recent earthquake took place. Wonder what that track looks like now????

Earthquake did not damage exactly Pescara; anyway around old track some buildings were added during years, but track itself is pretty untouched, as some old shots in towns like Spoltore or Cappelle (in the middle of circuit) are pretty the same (if not really the same)

I`d bet a fair amount that it was taken from the radio tower. It is about how I remember the look over anyway :)

Great circuit! Loved watching the WSB races there. Wish it would return to any Moto-schedule rather than Motegi
