ELMS - 4 Hours of Imola 2016

For the fourth consecutive year, the European Le Mans Series will return to the famous Imola circuit, renamed as Autodromo Enzo & Dino Ferrari after the death in 1988 of the ‘Commendatore'. 

Known for its very technical layout, which is difficult to conquer, its twists and turns require a superior level of driving.  The Autodromo Enzo & Dino Ferrari is one of the few European tracks where cars circulate anticlockwise.

The F1 San Marino Grand Prix took place there from 1981 to 2006 but there have been many fantastic endurance races, notably those between 250km to 1000km in distance, from three to six hours.  One Le Mans Series race, the 6 Hours of Imola, was held as part of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup (ILMC) in 2011. In 2013, endurance racing returned to the Italian track and the new format proved to be a great success for the venue.  In 2014 the race looked to be in the hands of NewBlood by Morand Racing only for them to slow several laps before the finish and for victory to go to JOTA Sport. In 2015, the second race of the season saw the brand new ORECA 05 secure its very first international  race win thanks to French team Thiriet by TDS Racing, ahead of the ORECA 03R of Murphy Prototypes and the JOTA Sport Gibson 015S.
