Stefano bonaccini, President of the Emilia Romagna region, calls the step taken by the Italian Government to hold the GP a historic milestone:

“We are now one step away from a historic milestone and after the decisive step taken by the Government we can finally announce it. The Made in Italy and Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix at Imola will be confirmed in 2022 and until 2025 to return the ‘Enzo e Dino Ferrari’ circuit to the Formula One calendar.

With the signature of President Draghi, the Government has decided to support the multi-year agreement proposal that we had presented. After the last two experimental editions of the race, the Imola GP can now be a regular event again. “

“Having brought Formula One back to Imola 14 years after the last race, we now want to take a quantum leap after receiving praise from the entire competition paddock.

I thank President Draghi once again, and with him the ministers for the teamwork that enables us to achieve the goal. With them the president of Aci, Sticchi Damiani, and Stefano Domenicali, CEO of Formula One Group, who I hope will come to sign the multi-year contract. And obviously the Municipality of Imola, the top management of the Circuit and CON.AMI. “

Putting Imola back on the map at the main motor competitions is a success for the entire region, helping many companies to become known:

“This is a success not only for Imola, Emilia-Romagna, the only region in which F1, MotoGP and Superbike will compete. This will further highlight the innovation capacity of many companies and the professionalism of many workers in this field at a global level. The investments that are being made are there to certify it. And the same will happen with the excellence of Made in Italy. “
