The old Syracuse Circuit was a road course outside of Syracuse, Sicily. It was used for a famous non-championship race, held every year in the spring. The first race was held in 1951, and the finale, which attracted a small field, was in 1967.

Sometime after the demise of the non-championship race, a smaller permanent circuit was built inside of the old one, while using part of the front straight.
