The circuit was originally named in honor of Enzo Ferrari’s son, Dino, who had died at a young age. When Enzo Ferrari passed in 1988, the track’s name was changed to include the names of both father and son.
Not far from the track’s observation tower is the newly-built Museo Checco Costa. Minardi and Scuderia Toro Rosso Formula One cars are on exhibit upstairs (as their headquarters in Faenza is not far from Imola), but the exhibit was unfortunately closed to visitors on the day that we were there. On the first week of May 2014, when the Senna twentieth anniversary tribute was underway at the track, the museum had debuted a special exhibit dedicated to his racing career.
