I received some mail from David Griac (jpm) who sent me many info about circuits in Slovakia and Czech Republic.
I'm very busy in this period and I can't add this info to my site in a short time, so meanwhile I copy and paste his mails here, so they are already available for everybody. As usal, thanks David!

Bolkovce (layout: see above)
In 1994 and 1995 Cena SNP was organized on airport track in Bolkovce near town of Lucenec. Length varied from 2,1 to 2,4 km. Bolkovce then stayed on Slovak national championships calendar from 1996 to 1999, nowadays historic racing events are still organized there.

don’t have layout
There was racing directly in Banska Bystrica before Badin started, but these were small national races (on brilliant tracks though). Getting some layouts together at the moment.
(also known as Cigelsky okruh which means Cigel circuit, Cigel being nearby village and circuit ran near mine called after village) This was probably the most exciting Slovak track, reminded of Spa, with trees, 67m elevation and quick corners. What it had in addition was railway crossing (going from the mine), part going through village, mixture of tarmac, brick and concrete surfaces and bridge where in 1972 was a fatal accident. The accident brought criticism, but what really stopped racing there was mine machinery in the way. Operational from 1964 to 1972 only, it was organized to give some entertainment to miners. Started as local event but quickly attracted international motorcycle racing and CzechoSlovak F3 (including Lotuses). Cars however ended in 1969 when one driver crashed after the finish and injured 32 spectators. 5,175 long, thinnest bit - 6m wide.

Nove Mesto nad Vahom
Racing in Nove Mesto started in 1952, and from then on there were several layouts running through town center. Until in 1970 a new layout was introduced. This was very dangerous and fast track, with sweeping corners and long straights, but it was popular with competitors. It started in town, but then went out around it. It was Czechoslovak motorcycle championship track. There was only one fatal accident though, in 1975 Czech racer Bursa had a puncture and crashed into a small bridge which catapulted him in the air. Racing was stopped after a very wet 1981 event when it was clear the track was just too dangerous for racing. In 2002 racing in town was revived, but only as historic event. Track leads through town centre again and is very popular with spectators. The 70s track was 5980m long, with elevation of 35m. also know as Podjavorinsky okruh (Podjavorinsky circuit), Javorina is a hill near the town.
