A1GP Mugello, Italy (19 -- 21 September 2008)

A1GP World Cup of Motorsport has confirmed the first race of the 2008/09 season will be held at the Mugello circuit in Italy on 21 September 2008.

The A1GP organisers have taken this opportunity at the start of 2007/08 championship finale at Brands Hatch, when there is a large media focus on the series, of announcing a brand new venue for the start of Season Four.

It will be the first time Italy has hosted an A1GP round, and the Italians are renowned as a nation who love their sport. Italy is the current football World Cup holders, having taken that crown in 2006.

The 5.25km Mugello circuit is one of Italy's most popular racing tracks and currently hosts motorcycling's premier series, MotoGP. It is located near Florence in Tuscany.

Mugello joins the current schedule alongside the previously announced round at Zandvoort, the Netherlands, which will take place two weeks later on October 3-5. The remainder of the 2008/09 schedule will be announced shortly.
