Ospedaletti is part of the Rete Nazionale Città dei Motori (National Motor Cities Network), since it is the site of the Ospedaletti-Sanremo Circuit. The track was constructed in 1947 to replace the City Circuit of Sanremo, which became too dangerous for its citizens. It was used until 1972. Included among the Gran Prix tracks, it was testimony to the greatest names in racing of the time: Nuvolari, Fangio, Ascari, Bira, and Villoresi. Although it closed to car races in 1951 following Johnny Claes’s accident, the Circuit continued to host motorcycle races, including the Grand Trophy of Ospedaletti. The track was finally suppressed for further safety issues. Today, that magic on two wheels continues on the Ligurian coast, thanks to the Ospedaletti Sanremo International Motorcycle Trophy, an annual commemoration with classic motorcycles organized on the historic track.
