The magic of Fiorano - What makes Ferrari's test track so special

We try to pin down why we love Fiorano just so much

During a recent trip to Maranello, Ferrari’s hometown, some of the evo team fell in love. Not with a gleaming red chunk of carbon fibre, aluminium, steel and rubber, no. Because although the cars weren’t bad, it was Fiorano, Ferrari’s test track, that enchanted us the most.

Without huge grandstands or vast pit garages it's like few other tracks. Its almost plain appearance gives little away, but once explored it’ll leave you captivated.

Over the next few pages, evo's Henry Catchpole, Antony Ingram and Will Beaumont give you their experiences of Ferrari's dedicated test track.

From a first visit to Ferrari's home town, to those first laps of the circuit and a look at the challenging layout of Fiorano, it's an insight into what makes the place so special. That so many incredible road and race cars have been developed there over the years adds to the magic.

And if you haven't checked it out already, here's what we found when visiting Enzo Ferrari's old office on the Fiorano site - preserved since his death and home to an amazing collection of items from the company's history.
