Pista di Fiorano | Top 10

Pista di Fiorano is a test track specially built for Ferrari. It has a wide range of corner types to simulate as many tracks as possible. Its main purpose is to develop and test new cars.

The biggest reason to build a racing track for Enzo Ferrari was when he realized the Monza Circuit didn’t fulfil his needs. The track was built in 1972 close to the village where it all started: Maranello. The track was originally 8,4 metres (27,6 ft.) wide and 3 kilometres (1,86 miles) long. Till this day it still is equipped with telemetry sensors and has a large skipad for tyre testing. Through the years, parts have been added like a chicane. This was built after Michael Schumacher’s input. In 1996, a renovated track was introduced which shortened the length by 24 metres (0,02 miles) making it 2,997 kilometres (1,86 miles). The biggest update: a fast corner to replace a sharp one at the end of the pit. In 2001 Ferrari installed an irrigation system to simulate wet tracks.

As crazy as the man was, Enzo built his house basically on the track. He would either sit in his house or sit next to the track to watch and hear the cars going down the track (as seen in the movie Rush; a film about the rivalry between Niki Lauda and James Hunt).
