RACE OVERVIEWMugello Grand Prix
In the 1920`s five road races were held on public roads around Tuscany. The races were revived in 1955 and in 1964 the Mugello Grand Prix ran on public roads with eight laps of 66 km per lap. Running in Targo Floria fashion, and using some roads from the Mille Miglia. The race was popular and was included in the World Sports car championship until 1970, when a child was killed during an unofficial practice session and the driver jailed for two years.
The purpose build Mugello International circuit was opened in 1974 then later bought by Scuderia Ferrari. Ferrari upgraded "the Mugello" as it is now known and the circuit represents a state of art FIA approved circuit. Safety was paramount in the design with large run off areas for safety and there are excellent viewing facilities for the spectator.
