I was watching my "Italian Racing Red" video from Duke
again and noticed something I missed before. They were
commenting of the nationalzation of the Italian auto industry
in 1933. Then showed the "Roma GP". Several cars going
around a tight right hairpin then.......

A huge radius, high banked, brick right hand turn that went
to a flat large radius left hand turn.

These are the only turns shown on the tape. I think this
was the Littorio circuit. But I can't seem to find any
info or diagram of the track.

Was this an effort to match the high speed turns at
Avus?

Hmm - looks like a hole in Darren's data there. Littorio was used for the 1931 and 1932 Rome GPs, but it's not here either:

Littorio was one of a batch of maps I sent to Darren recently. Here it is:
