It has 15 turns and a long straight.Grand Prix motorcycle racing host an annual event here (MotoGP and smaller classes). Also, the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters hold an annual event. The track is property of Scuderia Ferrari which uses it for Formula One testing. The first race of the A1GP 2008/09 season was originally planned to be held at the Mugello circuit on 21 September 2008.

Testing begins this week in Sebring, Florida ... followed next week at Sonoma Raceway in Northern California. These rumors will continue as the pre-silly season hits full stride.

UPDATE (from Twitter):

Graham, there were some discussions, but there will not be a race in Italy in 2013 or the foreseeable future.

Matt Breeden is the current Vice President of Business Affairs at IndyCar Series. If anyone may have the real inside scoop, it's Matt (at least until IndyCar changes its mind - example: read that as the Randy Bernard tenure).

That's brilliant, I really hope it's true and I certainly wish for a good size crowd if it is.
I'll watch it for sure.
