Route Report

Named after Enzo and Dino Ferrari, the Imola circuit, near Bologna, is one of the few circuits with an anti-clockwise direction and is known worldwide for its speed. The different characteristics of the chicanes, the fast corners and the uphill and downhill passages make the track quite demanding for the riders. The 4.933 km long circuit with 4 right-hand bends and 6 left-hand bends plus 3 chicanes is both a rider's and a performance track and requires a slightly longer learning curve, which is what makes this track so attractive. An exclusive experience, as it is only rarely available! 


Important Hints

All motorbikes riding on the track from the end of march 2007 should have either a standard exhaust system or an exhaust system with DB-killer. Other exhaust systems are not allowed.


Imola, the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, is a circuit in Italy which until 2006 hosted the San Marino Grand Prix. Due to the fact that one country is not allowed to host two Grand Prix events, the race at Imola was handed over to the mini state of San Marino and has now been definitively removed from the racing calendar in favour of Monza. Imola is characterised by a demanding up and down and the 3 chicanes, some of which have to be braked "blind". Due to the different characteristics of the chicanes, the fast corners and the uphill and downhill passages, where the suspension is crucial for a good lap time, the track is quite demanding for the riders. The most critical part of the circuit is the double left turn "Piratella". In addition, the road at Imola is also a source of further inconvenience: although the asphalt is flat throughout, it is still of varying quality after numerous repairs. This is why, for example, some chicanes are more slippery than others. This not only makes conditions more difficult in humid conditions. Imola is both a riders's track and a performance track, and it is difficult to learn, with "big balls" being required at many corners, which is what makes this beautiful track so appealing. The circuit is only 80 km from Maranello, the Ferrari headquarters. Imola is one of the few Formula 1 tracks that are driven counter-clockwise. The track gained sad fame in 1994, when Roland Ratzenberger died in Saturday practice and Ayrton Senna in the race the day after. Since then, great importance has been attached to the safety of the race tracks. The former name of the track was Autodromo Dino Ferrari, named after a son of Enzo Ferrari who died young. After his death in 1988 the name was extended. Imola is a town in northern Italy (Emilia-Romagna) in the province of Bologna. The population is about 65,000.
