Originally designed in 1969, the Misano circuit consists of 16 turns in total, made up of 10 right corners and 6 left. The track has been hosting events since 1972 and has been validated for every sport competition by international organisations.
In the last two decades, continuous modifications of the circuit have ensured an increasingly efficient facility. These improvements included a new pit lane, an increase in the stand capacities, a lengthening of the track to 4226km, a reversal of the direction of travel in accordance with MotoGP safety regulations and the addition of 17 generator-equipped light towers to enable to circuit to run competitions at night. The owners of the circuit have also invested in clean energy and have built a system which can produce electrical energy with zero emissions.
2017 saw Marc Marquez win a wet San Marino MotoGP, after passing Danilo Petrucci on the last lap, and Valentino Rossi missing his home event due to leg fractures sustained during his endurance training accident. With his victory on the Misano circuit track, Marc Marquez and Andrea Dovizioso tied for third place for the world championship on points, but Marquez soon grabbed the advantage - and the Championship title.
