Although nominally in the Republic of San Marino, the Misano World Circuit is, in fact, located near the popular Adriatic Riviera towns of Misano Adriatico and Riccione.
It was first constructed in 1972 and is one of just six circuits on the current calendar to host both MotoGP and World Superbike events.
Misano underwent a major modification for the 2007 season, when the racing direction changed from clockwise to counter-clockwise. Popular with both riders and spectators, it’s 4.18km in length and features five left turns and nine rights.
Bologna is the nearest major airport, 125km to the north west. However, flights also run into Ancona (100km) and Rimini (10km).
