Imola is an Italian motorsports circuit located in the city of Imola, approximately 100 kilometres east of Bologna. It is a venue for car and motorcycle racing events, including World Superbike and the Superstars Series.
Nearest track of a similar category is Mugello (46 kilometers away).
The Imola circuit was initially opened on 3 September 1953 as a 3.0 km long track, called Autodromo Dino Ferrari.
The track was later re-configured in 1976 to its present 4.909 km configuration and renamed in honor of Enzo and Dino Ferrari.
Over the years, Imola has hosted a number of prestigious motor racing events including Formula One, MotoGP, World Rally Championship and Superbike World Championship.
Imola is one of only three race tracks to have hosted an F1 grand prix, a MotoGP race, and a Superbike World Championship race in the same year, in 1998.
The Imola circuit has been part of the Formula One Calendar since 1980, alternately hosting both the Italian and San Marino Grand Prix.
During the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, Imola was the site of the deaths of three-time world champion Ayrton Senna and Austrian rookie Roland Ratzenberger.
In 2020, the track was renamed Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari following a local referendum in honor of the two Ferrari brothers.
The pit lane at Imola is the longest of any circuit in F1, measuring just over 240 metres in length from the start line to pit-exit.
The circuit is best known for its 'Tamburello' corner, where its narrow track width, blind entry and steep banking create a unique challenge for drivers.
Imola's pit building is the original one from 1980 and the circuit still retains much of its original layout, making for a unique racing experience for drivers and fans alike.
