From memory I recall the circuit, just outside of the town, encompassed part of an old airfield which had a poor surface and was not particularly interesting. The paddock left much to be desired of an International road racing circuit.
Our late arrival meant we had no opportunity to reconnoiter the circuit prior to practice which was further delayed by the need for us to deal with lengthy paperwork before the organisers would let me go out and then it started to rain which lasted for most of the early practice sessions. Not an encouraging start to the meeting!
Fitting front mudguards and changing rear sprockets time and again on my 125 and 250 Moto Parilla’s, all in the pouring rain, I was not at all surprised to find I could not get anywhere near the lap times of Heinz Rosner and the other MZ’s.
