The track had a length of Script error: No such module "convert"..[1] It was opened in 1950 and the circuit was crossed by an airstrip of about Script error: No such module "convert". in length[1] which was used by the local flying club.

The track hosted nine editions of the Modena Grand Prix for F1 and F2 racing cars, the last one in 1961. The circuit continued to host other racing events (sportcars, grand touring, Formula Junior, motorcycles) until 1975.

In the 1960s and 1970s the track also served as a test track for Ferrari, Maserati and Lamborghini during the morning or afternoon (but not both) on week days.[1] At other times of day it was used by residents of the adjacent military camp for driver training, equipped with less exotic vehicles.[1]

Despite the creeping expansion of nearby Modena, which involved a proliferation of apartment blocks and electricity pylons, the airstrip was a favoured venue for a number of local aerobatics enthusiasts.[1]

The circuit was subsequently demolished, and the site redeveloped as a public park to honour Enzo Ferrari.
