1960

The run-up to building Ferrari’s own race track began in the 1960s. Enzo Ferrari took possession of some land near the Maranello-based factory. When tracks like Autodromo di Modena and Autodromo Nazionale Monza couldn’t fulfill Ferrari’s needs anymore, they started making plans to construct their own test track.

1972

“From this moment on, I don’t want any Ferrari to tackle the track or address mass-production without passing the Fiorano test with flying colours.” That’s what Enzo Ferrari told the press when the track was revealed. The original track measured 8.4 metres wide and 3 kilometres long. The layout didn’t come out of nowhere: they integrated several features from  global race tracks.

1992

The track’s length increased to 3,021 metres after a chicane was added.

1996

Ferrari planned a renovation which saw the track decrease in length by 24 metres. One of the main updates was a faster corner to replace the sharp one at the end of the straightaway.

2000

Innovation after innovation. To simulate wet driving conditions, an irrigation system was installed that collects and stores rainwater.

2004

When Ferrari was still allowed to test their Formula 1 cars on the track, Michael Schumacher set the fastest lap time that still stands to this day: 0.55.999.

2006

Ferrari revealed the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano at the Geneva Motor Show, named for this fabled circuit.

2015

The Ferrari LaFerrari set the fastest lap time for a road car: 1.19.70
