The Mugello circuit was constructed in 1974 and is set in the hills above the city of Florence. Mugello hosted its first Grand Prix in 1976 and the layout of the circuit, which sits within a tree lined valley, has almost remained the same ever since. Purchased by Ferrari in 1988 and renovated afterwards, it became a permanent MotoGP venue from 1991 to the present day.
The circuit is made up of a total of 15 turns, including 9 right corners and 6 left corners, with the longest straight measures 1.141km. The circuit has a rare design as it is made up almost equally of straights and curves. It is famous for its slopes and fast curves.
