New look for Mugello

New look for Mugello

The Mugello circuit will be decorated in it's Sunday best for the Gran Premio d’Italia TIM this weekend, to celebrate 150 years of Italian unification.

The circuit will replace the traditional red and yellow colors of Ferrari, who owns the Italian circuit, with the colors of the national flag: green, white and red. These same colors are painted on the curbs of the track, a gesture in reverence to the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy.

“After twenty years of the traditional red and yellow colors, we decided to pay homage to our country during this significant anniversary,” explained Paolo Poli, Chief Executive of the Mugello circuit.

“As the historic home of Italian Grand Prix motorcycle racing, and as organizers of a sporting event with much international visibility, we feel a responsibility to represent our nation to the world," added Poli. “The new colors on the curbs are our tribute to our national identity on this date.”
