In particular, close to the circuit accesses you can find disabled-accessible car parking spaces. Detailed information about that will be included in the information materials of the KiSS Misano programme.Another key issue for KiSS Misano is about encouraging spectators and fans to waste sorting, in order to keep the circuit clean, stop littering and stop food waste.
