The Automobile Club d'Italia, the Automobile Club Firenze, and the ACI Storico Club will re-propose the Mugello Road Circuit from 28 to 30 April with the organisation of the Scuderia Automobilistica Clemente Biondetti.
The Circuito Stradale del Mugello, a classic regularity race, reproposes the legendary 'Gran Premio del Mugello', one of the oldest competitions in Italy (held between 1914 and 1970), in a re-evocative key.
From this year the race is valid for the Acisport Italian Grand Prix Championship.
Participation in the race will be reserved for cars produced up to 1990, but there will be a special category for road-going gran turismo cars built from 1991 onwards.
The original race took place on a ring of roads formed by the S.S. della Futa road linking Florence to Bologna and the Passo del Giogo road link. On this route, drivers of the calibre of Giuseppe Campari, Gastone Brilli Peri, Giulio Masetti, Emilio Materassi, Enzo Ferrari, Clemente Biondetti, Nino Vaccarella, Giovanni 'Nanni' Galli, Gijs Van Lennep, Vic Elford and Arturo Merzario competed.
During the first stage, scheduled for Saturday 29 April, the competition will start from Piazzale Michelangelo, right in the historic centre of Florence, and will touch places such as Impruneta, Strada in Chianti, Terranova Bracciolini, San Giustino Valdarno, pushing on as far as Arezzo, for a lunch stop. In the afternoon, the route will wind its way through Casentino territory, passing through Bibbiena and Poppi before ending at the Consuma Pass, allowing crews to return freely to Florence.
Along the route of the second stage, on Sunday 30 April, the crews will be called upon to compete on the historic Mugello Grand Prix track, passing through San Piero a Sieve, Scarperia, the Giogo Pass, Firenzuola, the Futa Pass and Barberino di Mugello, to finish at the Mugello Circuit with the prize-giving ceremony.
