The Mugello circuit is tucked away in the rolling hills of the Tuscany region and 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.
Located near Florence, the race track is right outside of Scarperia, a pretty small but charming town in the Mugello valley, about 32 km north of Florence, the current 15-corner layout of the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello was opened in 1974. The track hosts annual rounds of the MotoGP and other series and is used as a Formula One testing venue, mainly by the Scuderia Ferrari.
The 3 days of the Italian Moto GP at the Mugello race circuit are a real event for the Mugello valley. The event is very well attended and many lodgings in the area are booked months in advance for those 3 days.
You’ll also have the opportunity to get up close and personal to the teams garages and possibly the riders in the Paddock and Pit Lane.
