The stunning Tuscan hills play hosts to the Italian MotoGP round, where the frenetic Mugello Circuit has hosted a race annually since 1991. For years, Italian fans would celebrate the victories of legend Valentino Rossi, as he cemented his legacy at Mugello. The Italian love affair with MotoGP has continued, with riders Franco Morbidelli, Danilo Petrucci and Lorenzo Savadori flying the flag in 2022.
The Mugello circuit is a combination of hard braking zones followed by more ferocious high-speed corners. That includes turns 8 and 9, known as the ‘Arrabiata’ or ‘Angry’ turns. The riders of Moto2 and Moto3 will have to get up to speed quickly, as they fire up alongside MotoGP throughout the weekend.
Just north of Rome and a short distance from Florence, the Mugello circuit is serenely situated amongst the beauty of the Italian hills. The region is steeped in motorsport history, with the circuit at Imola a short drive away, and San Marino not far either.
