Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli Announces New Track Time-Based Rental Fees

Most racing circuits around the world offer rental services to supplement the cash flow, and amateur two- and four-wheeled weekend warriors can often be seen fighting for friendly glory around these turns. The Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli is no different and hosts multiple such events when no other official races are taking place.

However, the Misano circuit now has a new cutting-edge technology which offers those who rent track time a more precise way to determine their costs, while being transparent and easy to use. While the management of other circuits would not care how much time you actually use the track, the guys running the Misano circuit do.

Reading track entry and exit times

In order to provide riders and drivers with more accurate pricing, the management of the Misano World Circuit has worked closely with financial group Financo and one of the subsidiary companies, Group Colacem, Italy’s third-largest cement producer and distributor.

The system comprises a complex array of sensors which can read the track entry and exist times for each vehicle, with the result being a most accurate pricing basis for occasional racers. Even more, this system allows racers to plan their outings better, with a better perspective of the financial effort such moves involve.

So far, the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli is the only track in Italy with such a system, but since it provides such a fair pricing solution, we can definitely hope to see more tracks picking up the idea and implementing it.

More technological upgrades to come

Built in 1969, the Misano circuit has been under private management ever since, with the first sporting activities taking place three years after its completion. 1993 saw the track lengthened, with more expansion of the trackside facilities following in 1996-1998. The track was renovated massively in 2005, while 2006 brought a new level of safety for world-class sporting events.

2008 and 2011 have also been key moments in the history of the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. Misano became the second circuit in the world to be completely covered by Wi-Fi internet access, after the Motegi track in Japan. This allowed for modern timing and data management solutions which raised the bar in the racing world. Now, the racing facilities in Misano include a top notch medical center and are also equipped with massive solar panels for producing energy with zero emissions.

The Bike Expo in Verona,Italy, 23-25 January, 2015 will bring news on the MotoGP and World Superbike rounds, the dates when the track is available for rental and more.
