Pista Azzurra was built in 1962 and was one of the first racetracks in Italy. It was later altered in 1985 to include the existing track and today it is now a true icon in international go-karting. Over the last fifty years, some of the world’s best go-karters have raced at Pista Azzurra, many of whom have reached the peak of racing in F1.
The first World Championship was held here in 1968 and from 1972 thirteen editions of the Champions League were hosted – a real World Championship of sorts in those years. Plus there have been various editions of European and national championships, where racing drivers of the likes of Prost, Patrese, Senna, Zanardi, Schumacher, Fisichella, Kubica, Badoer, Hamilton and many more have starred in thrilling races at the Jesolo track.
This is the reason why Pista Azzurra (with its highly technical track) continues to be considered a great testing ground for new pilots wanting to test out speed quality and their vehicles.
Pista Azzurra has also hosted a variety of events such as the Festivalbar music concert and Ferrarissimo, as well as motorcycle rallies and, most recently, Bike Week. It is a multi-functional space that can answer to the needs of a variety of events.
Last but not least, it is also used for driving courses and for open days, when new car models are presented to customers.
