BORGO PANIGALE (DUCATI)
Not to be confused with Bologna (1908÷1913) - Bologna, Autodromo - Bologna, Giardini Margherita - Bologna, Motor Show - Bologna, Zappoli - Borgo Panigale, Pista Azzurra
Description Small Ducati proving ground, nearby Borgo Panigale factory. This map is drawn according to an aerial photo dated probably 1998 or 1999. When I drove in via De Gasperi in summer 2004 I noticed that the track was shortened, maybe for use its area for something else. Now it has a much slower layout and it’s entirely in the area nearby via Pietro Jahier.

BO - Bologna - Emilia Romagna
Location Nearby Ducati factory, between via Pietro Jahier, via De Gasperi and via Antonio Cavalieri Ducati, Borgo Panigale, in Bologna suburb, Emilia Romagna.
