4 Motorsport Track Art Imola - Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari
When was the track built?
Imola – or the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari as it’s been known since 1988 – had its foundation stone laid in March 1950. It was ready for testing by October 1952, while racing began at the circuit in 1953.
When was its first Grand Prix?
Imola first hosted a non-championship F1 race in 1963, but it would take some politicking with Monza in 1980 before the track was awarded the honour of hosting the Italian Grand Prix for the first time that year. From 1981, the two tracks worked together in perfect harmony, with Imola taking on its famous ‘San Marino’ title, and going on to host a total of 27 Grands Prix up until 2006. It returned as venue for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in 2020.
What’s the circuit like?
A thrill ride. After testing his AlphaTauri AT01 at the track in the build-up to the 2020 season, Pierre Gasly called the experience one of the best he’d ever had in a Formula 1 car, while his then-team mate Daniil Kvyat remarked that “an F1 car through corners like Acque Minerali – the entrance is so fast, it’s so cool. It really gives you a lot of adrenaline.” The anti-clockwise circuit is certainly fast, with an old-school feel as the drivers put it on the line in iconic corners like the aforementioned Acque Minerali and Piratella.
Our Track Art are supplied laser cut from 3mm Genuine Perpsex which has a 10 year guarantee against cracking or distortion through sun light and UV Rays.
With a choice of two fixings, you decide whether your Track Art is supplied with chrome stand off brackets (x2 although some tracks have additional). The installation is to simply mark your wall, attach the chrome backing (screws and rawl plug not included) and screw the chrome cap on, trapping the Track Art between.
Or supplied with no mounting holes and supplied with 3M double sided adhesive blocks which require sticking on the back and trimming to size with scissors or a knife.
Our Track Art is cut from Black Perspex which measures 290m wide by 190mm tall. The actual Track Art will be scaled to best fit these measurements but will not be compacted so as to maintain the original scale.
All our tracks have the race track name and direction of travel engraved on the start / finish straight but you may decide to personalise it as you choose.
