Autodromo di Pergusa 1

Located in the heart of Sicily the Autodromo Pergusa was built in 1951 in a scenic location around Lake Pergusa and since then has hosted many national and international events. After half a century, during which champions like Michael Schumacher raced, there were disputed Formula 1, Formula 2 and Formula 3000 races; from 2004 to 2011 sporting activity was suspended due to the runway’s renovation work. Currently, since reopening, it is the only circuit in southern Italy present important International Events.
The fast track winds along the banks of the lake and is characterized by long straights and tight variants not originally present but created for safety reasons. The most spectacular points of the track are undoubtedly the three difficult variants “Proserpina”, “Pineta” and “Zagaria” that impose necessary breaking and great agility in changing directions.
The track also hosts side activities such as classic cars exhibitions and sports events at the regional and local levels. The racetrack was also always a location for major concerts: among others, Jovanotti, Pooh, 883 and Gianna Nannini have performed here.
