About the circuit
The sixth Online Challenge for MotoGP™’s eSport Championship sees us at the home of the tifosi – the Mugello Circuit in Italy. Compete on Valentino Rossi’s Movistar Yamaha YZR-M1 in the Online ‘Time Attack’ session and set a world-best time in the dry.
Located 30km north-east of Florence in the beautiful countryside of Tuscany, Mugello is a modern circuit with excellent facilities. Bought by Ferrari back in 1988, the 5.245km track has been renovated to a high standard and has a growing reputation as one of the world’s most up-to-date, scenic and safest race circuits.
A blend of slow and fast turns with sweeping curves, long straights and off-camber corners make Mugello one of the most challenging circuits for the riders and engineers. Having hosted its first MotoGP event back in 1976 the venue became a permanent fixture in 1991 after extensive refurbishment. Set within a beautiful tree lined Tuscan valley, Mugello also offers ample viewing areas for a particularly boisterous and partisan Italian crowd.
The quickest gamer who posts the fastest lap worldwide on any platform (PS4, Xbox One, and PC) will be invited to show their skills in the second Semi-Final and fight against the best gamers in the World for a seat in the Grand Finale, held on the 16th November in Valencia during the MotoGP™ Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana.
