Mugello Ferrari Challenge, September 21st – 23rd

The CSAI (Italian Automotive Sports Committee) Italian Championship is back in the wonderful land of Mugello!

A fascinating weekend dedicated to the world of engines, with races and lots of surprises.

Don’t miss this event – September 21st-23rd – which will feature Gran Tourismo and Turismo Endurance testing, with the best drivers around.

Ferrari Challenge is one of the most popular one-brand championships and it hosts both debutant and experienced drivers.

The VII° edition of the MotoGP 2009 is taking place next weekend in Mugello.

The Gran Premio d’Italia represents an important event that is seeing this year a momentary stop in the general outcomes, with 4 pilots competing for victory.
Valentino Rossi, after a series of errors that caused his retire from the Le-Mans circuit, is following his team-mate Jorge Lorenzo together with the Ducati pilot Casey Stoner, 8 scores behind (57) we can find Dani Pedrosa.

For those who have purchased a ticket valid for the entire weekend, there is the possibility to have free access to the pit-lane, to look closely to the box of their idols. Again, the “Ducati pack” that, with a cost of 165 euros, gives access to the correntaio gallery for three days, carachterized by particular choreographies realized by the Desmodromiclub of Rome. Tribune spectators will enjoy the big screen of 33mq and the entrance ticket’s price includes parking for motorbikes and wardrobe for putting your helmets and jackets.

The Mugello race represents a test of truth for the Ducati team, that has to show improvements caused by the Melandri-Hayden change, yet. Hayden has not shown the energy of his motorbike yet. His team is confident about the innovations introduced in Le-Mans, so Hyden in Mugello – one of his favourite circuits – should be able to emphasize his motorbike speed features, developed just in such Tuscan circuit.

So Valentino Rossi challenge his opponents. This experienced, invincible pilot representing an insurmountable obstacle for new recruits, goes beyond his professional skills and makes of this situation a matter or honour. There is no doubt that we can expect this challenge to be really intense.
