Built in 1982 for the development and knowledge of off-road driving and to promote tourism in the area.
Why off-road? Because, immediately after the war, the "Campagnola Fiat" and the ex-military "Willys Jeeps" and "Ford Mutts" circulated in the Dragone Valley, often coming from the Migliarino depots in Tuscany and Verona. Many of these vehicles were bought at military auctions and reconverted for agricultural and sporting use by the Forti workshop in Palagano.
On the basis of this activity, a number of off-road enthusiasts began to take part in rallies held mainly in the northern regions of Italy. The 1974-1980 rally seasons fuelled a desire to set up a real off-road club similar to others then in vogue (Genova Foristrada, Panze Club Prato, Ele3phant Club Milano, Nazionale Fuoristrada of Bologna, Daniele Lugli of Ferrara, Alfa Matta of Parma, etc. ...) and on 20 June 1982 the Palagano Off-Road Club was established.
The establishment of the Club led to the creation of a permanent facility both for circuit use and to prevent off-road vehicles from circulating in woodland, pastures and private property.
The circuit built close to the Dragone torrent consisted of two areas: Track "A" and Track "B", with a total length of 10 km on all types of terrain (rock, earth, sand, river bed, etc.).
Since 1984, the facility has been registered as a "permanent off-road track" by the Municipality of Palagano and the Province of Modena.
The track layout was then homologated by the C.S.A.I. (Italian Motor Sports Commission) in 1983, 1989, 1995 and finally in 2001 after the extension of tracks "A" and "B", which are now 16 km long.
The activity of the P.F.C. has been exceptional, to say the least. Various events have been organised, such as the Trans-Apennine Modena-Lucca, through the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, the Camel Trophy selections for 8 years from 1983 to 1990, the Europa Trophy, the first in Europe to be conceived and organised by the P.F.C. in 1985-86-87, and the Eurotrial 4x4 in 2002 with 10 European nations taking part, etc.
Since 2006, new regularity and "orienteering" events have been held on the track and in the surrounding valleys, such as the "Regularity Challenge" organised by the F.I.F. (Italian Off-Road Federation) and the "National Trial" valid for the Italian Championship.
On weekends the track hosts off-roaders who come privately from all over Italy to the Dragone to enjoy "real off-road driving", not "asphalt driving".
The "tooth" of the Dragone track is as famous as that of Veglio Mosso (Vercelli) and has always been the "acid test" for any off-roader worth his/her salt.
