Abstract

The old royal race track of Madrid, located in the north end of the Paseo de la Castellana, was demolished in 1933. To build a new one, the Gabinete Tecnico de Accesos y Extrarradio de Madrid summoned, on July 6 1934, a design competition. The new constmction would be located in the mount of «El Pardo», property of Patrimonio de la Republica, where they were being carried out the tracks of careers. The proposals should be adjusted to this layout. I Nine projects of architects or engineer/architect teams were presented, and the verdict of the jury became public December 18 1934.
