The Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli and the Gran Premio Octo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini should be a weekend high on the bucket list.
The local area has produced some great riders. The late Marco Simoncelli was from the nearby town of Cattolica, and Valentino Rossi, Andrea Dovizioso and Marco Melandri all grew up in the region as well. Part of the Apennine mountain range, San Marino’s highest point is Monte Titano, 749m (2,457 ft) above sea level, providing great views of the beautiful surrounding area for the 30,000 inhabitants of this tiny country.
The nearby Riviera Di Rimini in Italy’s fantastic northern Emilia-Romagna region is a big draw for Italian holiday-makers and those visiting from abroad, making it a phenomenal setting for a Grand Prix weekend.
