The historic Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari at Imola was rebuilt for the 2009 WSBK season, having hosted six previous events between 2001 and 2006.
The 4.933km circuit with 17 turns – ten rights and seven lefts – witnessed one of the finest ever motorcycle races when Colin Edwards and Troy Bayliss traded paint for lap after lap as they battled for the 2002 World Superbike title.
Imola is just 40km east of Bologna in northern Italy, and the circuit is favoured by riders and spectators alike for being fast, flowing and undulating.
