MotoGP confirmed at Mugello until 2011

With the Gran Premio d'Italia Alice set to take place at the Mugello circuit this coming weekend, Jean Todt, General Director of Ferrari, and Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of Dorna Sports SL, today signed a new contract at Maranello, which will see Mugello host the Gran Premio d'Italia for a further five years (2007-2011).

"The Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello has taken on an increasingly important role for Ferrari over the years, since owning it", stated Jean Todt. "This agreement demonstrates the high levels of standard already achieved by our structure from every point of view, and at the same time represents a new starting point, taking into account the latest development programme. I am therefore delighted to be able to announce that Mugello will continue to host MotoGP, the pinnacle of motorcycling, with the Gran Premio d'Italia which will continue to be the most important event on our sporting calendar over the next few years. The agreement also means that we can continue in our successful collaboration with Dorna, an organisation whose professionalism has allowed motorcycling to take on levels of popularity never seen before."

"We are very satisfied with this agreement, which extends our collaboration with the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello for another five years," said Ezpeleta. "We are proud to be able to work with Ferrari, a legendary name in motorsport throughout the world, and also to have a circuit like Mugello as a host to the MotoGP World Championships, with both an organisation and a track which are at the very highest level, and where every year we see one of the most exciting and passionately followed events on the MotoGP calendar."
