Mugello is located northeast of Florence, Italy, in the rolling hills of the beautiful Tuscany region. Mugello has roots back to the 1920’s where it started as a road circuit used for regularity races.
The present-day closed Mugello circuit was constructed in 1973 and opened in 1974, about five km east from the easternmost part of the original road circuit.
By the mid 1980s, however, Mugello was in financial trouble and there was much uncertainty as to the circuit's future. However, in 1988, the circuit was purchased by Ferrari who intended to use it as an additional testing facility for its Formula 1 cars. Extensive renovations were carried out and the changes ensured the return of the Motorcycle World Championships and the debut of the World Superbikes.
Mugello is one of Italy's classic circuits, beloved of the motorcycle racing brigade. Each year thousands pack into the grandstands to worship the MotoGP riders, in particular home hero Valentino Rossi, whose fans turn the hillsides yellow in deference to their hero.
On four wheels, the circuit hosts various GT and touring car championships and the settings as well as the lay-out of the track make it very popular among drivers. The track runs over 5,245 km, through the forests and green areas, starting with a long, sweeping main straight spilled into a rising right-hander, before rising and falling through the hillsides behind the pits through a series of fast corners.
In 2016 we participated in the 12h Mugello and finished 3rd in class.
