Original 1.627 mile street circuit.

1.964 mile street circuit.

2.089 mile purpose built circuit.

Located 2.1 miles outside of the city (now known as Maputo), this 2.089 mile/3.38 km circuit was based on public roads, but was used in a 1.627 mile configuration in 1960, and a 1.964 mile configuration in 1961. The first three hour race held in 1966 was part of the Springbok Series, but in 1967 seven spectators were killed when Botha's Brabham crashed in a minor race meeting. Used up to at least 1972, when Gerry Birrel and Jochen Mass won the 3 Hrs race in a Chevron B21.
