Located 30km north-east of Florence in the beautiful countryside of Tuscany, Mugello is a modern circuit with excellent facilities. Bought by Ferrari back in 1988, the 5.245km track has been renovated to a high standard and has a growing reputation as one of the world’s most up-to-date, scenic and safest race circuits.

A blend of slow and fast turns with sweeping curves, long straights and off-camber corners make Mugello one of the most challenging circuits for the riders and engineers. Having hosted its first MotoGP event back in 1976 the venue became a permanent fixture in 1991 after extensive refurbishment. Set within a beautiful tree lined Tuscan valley, Mugello also offers ample viewing areas for a particularly boisterous and partisan Italian crowd.

Balda’s thought

Mugello is one of the most beautiful circuits in the world. The Italian Grand Prix always has its charm. I must say that it is a truly spectacular track; it’s all ups and downs, there are blind turns, fast corners and turns to connect, in short, a lot of stuff! Casanova-Savelli and Arrabbiata 1-2 are the most spectacular. It’s also amazing when you arrive very fast on the straight, you ride over a slight rise of the track, you almost take off and then you brake at 300 km / h at San Donato, a very hard braking.
