Scarperia
Original proposal
Description First draft of the circuit proposed on February 1966 by Automobil Club Firenze. The ground, already found, is very undulating, with two depressions and a central hill and it should be the same area where later was built the circuit opened in 1974 and still in use today, but as you can see, track layout was completely different. Architect Mario Boan did a plastic model of this area and he was able to draw a circuit considered spectacular and challenging. There were 11 corners, one of them with a 18° banking and two with a minor banking; its radius was between 90 and 215 m (between 295 and 705 ft). It should have had 15 boxes, total length 60 m - 197 ft, on the right side of the track and in front of the main grandstand. From the latter, it should have been possible to see at least 70% of the track. These informations make me think that tribune was on the external side of the track, pits on the internal, so direction could have been clockwise. Total cost was foreseen between 400 and 500 million Lire of that time (between 206.500 e 258.000 Euro of that time), to be paid by ACI (Italian Automobil Club), local Automobil Clubs, Commune of Scarperia, Province of Florence, Provincial Tourtso Authority of Florence and maybe some petrol and oil factories. At mid December 1967 another layout was proposed, completely different from this one (see)

Mugello
Description First proposed permanent circuit in Mugello, completely different from the well known track, opened only in 1974. In Mid December 1967 a convention tool place at Palazzo Pretorio, Scarperia, in order to present officially the proposal for Autodromo Toscano, that should replace the old famous Mugello street circuit. Proposed circuit should have been undulating (see elevation profile) and 3 different layouts, suitable for any kind of races, both cars and motorbikes. Moreover, it should have had a link to the old Mugello circuit (not shown on my map).

Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello
Description Plan for new Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello (Mugello International Circuit) updated to Spring 1971. Works should have been started within next Summer and circuit should have been inaugurated in Spring 1973 (in fact first race was raced on June 23rd 1974).
Three circuit were proposed; I think that my maps shows the long and the medium ones.
