The Mugello Circuit and the Italian Grand Prix

In Tuscany you say MotoGp, it sounds Mugello! If you like motorbikes and cars and races you have for sure already heard about Mugello, the most important Italian circuit situated in the province of Florence, Tuscany. Its history dates back to 1914, when the first motor race was held on this famous road circuit. Yes, a road circuit because originally the Mugello racetrack was a 66 km dusty road from Scarperia uphill to Firenzuola, and then through the Futa Pass downhill San Piero and Scarperia. The enthusiasm of the Tuscan spectators increases every years and nowadays the Mugello circuit represents an example of 5.245 metres of safety, technology and facilities combined together. It was designed in the Seventies and today it is the regular test centre of Ferrari F1, the most important manufacturer of MotoGP and World Superbike and other Italian and international prestigious manufacturer cars.
