The Enzo & Dino Ferrari International Racetrack is renowned all over the world as an extremely technical and difficult to drive circuit, with complex corners, which can be driven at high speeds and which demands outstanding professionalism.
The origins of Imola’s Racetrack are recalled as follows by a very special witness, Enzo Ferrari, in a book he wrote in 1980:
“My first contact with Imola dates back to the spring of 1948. […] From the very first moment I considered the possibility to turn that hilly area into a small Nurburgring due to the natural difficulties condensed into the circuit that was going to be built, thus offering a really demanding track for men and machines alike”.
