I know, we have discussed this long time ago---

Two F2 races in february 1971, good entries, and I have the race results. But a map of the track is missing. Anyone?

Also, I have some doubt of the dates, february 7 and 14 or february 14 and 21?

Kind regards
Stefan

14th and 21st according to ORC and I'd trust Chris to have got that right.

race dates and titles I have are ;7th Feb,Colombia Grand Prix;14th Feb Bogota Grand Prix.These would have been from the Autosport or MN reports at the time.Curiously the first ORC page mentions that the chassis numbers are from Motoring News of 11th Feb .BEFORE the event?

Ah, good point. In that case Chris got it right and I got it wrong when I transcribed it.

I'm from Colombia. Are F2 international track called Autódromo Internacional de Ricardo Mejía. 

It was located in the capital city limits of Bogotá.

Inaguration February 7th 1971 (was closed in the same decade, but i don't know the exactly date)

 

Today this track is abandonaded...you can see on google maps-earth  Latitude - Longitude: + 4°46'41", - 74°02'51"

 

 

 

 

 

So, today works the Autodromo de Tocancipá, a short track with 2.4 km 

www.autodromodetocancipa.com

Located 40 minutes from Bogotá.

But this is not an international track.
