Hello everyone,

I will be traveling to Imola this summer, and I was wondering if someone knows how can I reach Ayrton's memorial at the Tamburello turn. I understand this is inside the track, but is it available to guests who want to pay tribute? Do i have to get in touch with the track authorities?

Thanks

Hello there

The Memorial is outside the track in the public area.....just walk round the outside and you can spot in the trees up a steepish bank.

Thank you very much for the reply my friend! I thought that in order to get there you need to actually enter the track. Now is clear that access is free. Thanks again

I make a clarification.

What you see in the rossifumi46's picture is not the memorial.
That's a plate outside the Tamburello corner, at the point where the accident occurred. It can be reached by walking on the Santerno riverbank (white line, 0.6 kms).

The memorial is located inside the circuit, including Tamburello and Tosa corners, in a beautiful public park for children.

You can reach by walking from the finish line (0.7 kms)

or by car from outside the racetrack (3.5 kms), entering from Tosa gate.

At Tosa entrance you can see the Ratzenberger memorial.

Thanks Gio66,

In fact it would be great if you could give me some info regarding my trip from Milan to Imola. I was thinking not to rent a car and use the public transportation (train) but haven't decided yet. I will be in Monza for the F1 race in September and I plan to combine my stay there with a one-day trip to Imola. Any good advice will be valuable!

The trip from Milano to Imola (250 km) is very simple.

By car, take the A1 motorway and continue straight ahead for about 220 km until Bologna. There take the exit for the A14 (towards Rimini) and after 30 km you find the exit for Imola. Then follow the signs to the Autodromo.
Google maps can help, post a start location of your hotel in Milan and place of arrival as the address of the circuit Via Fratelli Rosselli 2, 40026 Imola (Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari)

By train, from Milano Centrale, you can reach Bologna in one hour with the Freccia Rossa (but the ticket costs about 44 euros) and then change the train to Imola (total time 1h 45').

From the train station, you arrive at the Autodromo walking (2 km) or by taxi.
