The start of the 2020 campaign happens at Magione from July 25-26 on a clockwise track that was inaugurated on April 7, 1973, with a total length of 2507 metres. After the first race meeting in Umbria, the Smart EQ fortwo e-cup moves to Vallelunga from 12-13 September: a track close to Rome named after legendary Italian racing driver Piero Taruffi. Next up come two new venues for 2020: Pergusa and Varano.
The Pergusa round, in the depths of Sicily not far from Enna, will take place from 10-11 October. It’s a high speed blast around a lake, on a circuit that was inaugurated in 1951. Two weeks later, the next round takes place at Varano: a circuit close to Parma, named after Italian driver Riccardo Paletti, killed in 1982 at the start of the Canadian Grand Prix.
From 14-15 November the championship moves to Misano on the Adriatic Coast – a track dedicated the memory of bike racer Marco Simoncelli since 2011 – before the grand finale. This is scheduled from December 5-6 at Adria International Raceway: a circuit in the Veneto region of Italy that was previously also used for the DTM championship.
