Tampere Circuit was a motorsport race track located in Tampere, Finland. The route was used for an annual motorcycle race called Pyynikinajo in 1932-1939 and 1946-1971. In 1962 and 1963, the circuit hosted the Finnish motorcycle Grand Prix, a round of the Grand Prix motorcycle racing world championship. The track ran on public streets of the Pyynikki district. The event was banned after 1971 due to general safety concerns.
