Mugello To Host Auto GP Season Finale

1 Mins read

The final round of the Auto GP season will take place at the Mugello circuit in Italy on 1-2 October. It replaces the Bucharest round scheduled for August which was cancelled after the event promoter couldn't gain the necessary homologation for the Romanian street circuit.

The season was due to end at Valencia in support of the World Touring Car Championship round there on 3-4 September, but will now conclude at the Italian circuit.

“I'm really satisfied with this agreement with Mugello Circuit,” said series boss Enzo Coloni. “It's widely known worldwide, and drivers deem it as one of the most challenging tracks in the world. That's why our drivers were very happy when we hinted at this possibility.

“Looking at the peculiarities of the circuit they will really have the chance to use all the potential of the car. The long main straight will allow them to unleash all the power and reach very high speeds, but they will have to work carefully on the aero balance of the car because Mugello has many corners that require a good amount of downforce. I'm sure that it will be a great show.”

Mugello Circuit CEO Paolo Poli said: “Promoting all kind of high level motorsport is our corporate philosophy, and I feel that this agreement with Enzo Coloni fits perfectly in this definition. We're happy to have on our track a championship that despite its young age is already deemed as one of the most promising in international motorsport, also thanks to the great TV Coverage guaranteed by Eurosport.

“From our side, we are happy that Auto GP will find a Mugello Circuit that is in his best shape ever. Apart from our very technical layout, whose features has always been praised by the drivers, we will boast a brand new tarmac, new grandstands and new spaces for spectators in the Casanova-Savelli area.”
