I'm intrigued by the mention of 1939. Car or bike races? As far as I was aware the first motor sport event in Spain after the Civil War was a hillclimb at Vallevidrera in 1940.
Circuito "Parque del Retiro" was used from 1939 to 1966.It was in Madrid city Centre

In that year Spanish Civil war ended so Madrid was in ruins.
At that days hillclimbs races were the most common thing.
This year Parque del Retiro was used for Martini Classic sportscar event .

What I am looking for are FJ results from the early sixties in Spain. The only one that throws up shows Parco Retiro/Casa del Campo .
Obviousy the compiler was having the same difficulty as myself, there appear to be few records. Joe(Dodo) says that Jo Siffert won a Junior race in Spain and that he himself had good results there with a Foghlietti. Can the mighty collective intellect that is TNF throw any light?

21st May 1961
2nd Madrid GP (aggregate of 2 x 40 lap heats)
1. Lucien Balsiger (Lotus Ford)
8. Giuseppe Baggio (Foglietti Fiat)
No other mention of Spanish FJ results
From Jo Siffert by Deschenaux
Siffert was 1961 European FJ Champion (jointly with Tony Maggs) but no mention of winning a Spanish FJ round.
From GP Racing Facts & Figures by Monkhouse & King-Farlow
Repeat of the Madrid GP result but no others.
