The Misano motor racing circuit was designed in 1969 (3,488 m) and has always been under private management. Sports activities began after three years. At the sides of the track, small open pits and a building used exclusively to house racetrack offices.

The beginning of the 1990s saw the launching of a renovation project which over successive phases guaranteed the availability of an increasingly efficient facility.


The first expansion project dates to 1993: the track was lengthened to 4,060 metres, making it possible to use two track configurations, a long and a short one; a building was also erected with new garages, technical rooms, reception rooms and a large pressroom of around 600 sq. m. In 1996 and 1997, a second stage of work was carried out to complete the building and the pits. In 1998 the paddock area was extended to a total of 40,000 sq. m.

Construction of the 1st set of stands, with a seating capacity of 5000, was completed in 2001.
