Circuito del Garda is an Italian racing venue in Salò on the banks of Lake Garda, known for hosting fifteen Grand Prix races between 1921 and 1966.[1]

These were arranged in three periods. Between 1921-27 there were victories by Diatto drivers Eugenio Silvani (1921) and Guido Meregalli (1922-24), as well as Bugatti drivers Aymo Maggi (1925-26) and Tazio Nuvolari (1927 in a Bugatti 25). Next, in the period 1948-50 there were victories by Ferrari drivers Giuseppe Farina (1948), Luigi Villoresi and Alberto Ascari. The third period was the final, between 1961-66.
