Info and news about the upcoming Mugello GP 2018

GP of Mugello 2018 of Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort

For motor enthusiasts the Mugello means racing and speed, thanks to the presence of the historic Autodromo, where anxiously awaits the upcoming Moto GP 2018!

Autodrome of Mugello in Scarperia

The Mugello racetrack, located in the municipality of Scarperia (FI), is a historic circuit where very important races for motorcycling and international motor racing took place.

The structure was designed in the seventies and completely renovated in the following years, has a length of 5.245 m. and is immersed in the beautiful Tuscan countryside.

It was probably driven by the success of the Targa Florio that in 1914 was organized for the first time a car race in Mugello, called the Tuscan Automobile Circuit, with characteristics similar to the Madonie test, but with the formula of regularity.

From this spirit and from the passion for racing, the Mugello racetrack is born as we know it today, where soon will held the Moto GP 2018.
