Track of The Month – October 2020
Imola – San Marino
The Race Centre’s Track of the Month for May is the circuit of Imola in San Marino.
Officially known as the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, Imola is a 3.1-mile circuit with a history of racing dating back to 1953. Originally renowned for its flat out corners, including the infamous Tamburello, the circuit has regularly been changed and adapted to the safety regulations of modern motorsport.
Today, chicanes add a level of precision to the already demanding Sammarinese circuit.
F1 will be returning here on the 31st of October – 1st November for the first race since 2006. Kimi Räikkönen is the only current driver on the grid to have participated in an Imola F1 Grand Prix.
Come to The Race Centre this month to see if you are up to the challenge of Imola.
Take a look below for a flying lap of Imola onboard the Ferrari of Michael Schumacher, a 7-time winner of the San Marino Grand Prix!
