Italian Grand Prix

Panoramica MugelloMugello circuit will host the Italian Grand Prix! There are fewer finer sights in MotoGP than a stream of riders heading down the straight at Mugello and into the Tuscan hillside. Owned by Ferrari it is enjoyed by both riders and fans alike, and is often used as a mid-season testing ground by teams and factories. Slow turns blend with fast, sweeping curves and long straights mix it up and off-camber corners all combine to make Mugello one of the most challenging circuits on the calendar.
