After had been awarded as the “Best Grand Prix 2011″, this year Mugello will host 9th MotoGP World Championship.
In this edition, there will be a new tribune, divided into two parts and placed next to the famous bend “Arrabbiata”. The tribune has been dedicated to the Italian Marco Simoncelli, the unforgettable rider who died last October.
The two tribunes will host 1500 spectators and will be red-white coloured, obviously with number 58.
Last year, Jorge Lorenzo won the Gran Premio 2011 with his Yamaha, the second was Pedrosa and the third Nicky Hayden. Nothing to do for Valentino Rossi, who gained 5th position.
After having reached 6th position at Sanchsenring on last 8th July, Rossi declared that this was the best position he gained in 2012.
In order to celebrate his 38th birthday, once again the Mugello Circuit decided to encourage a larger participation with a series of sales on tickets.
At Mugello, you can spend an emotional day at the circuit and also enjoy moments of relax in the beautiful Tuscan rolling hills.
You can also visit Scarperia, the town where the Mugello is placed, which is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
Scarperia hosts other several events and festivals all year round and it’s also very famous for its handmade knives. As a matter of fact, here visitors will have the chance to visit the Museum of cutting knives.
So, who will be the winner of this edition? Mugello is waiting for you!
