The Autodromo Enzo and Dino Ferrari in Imola hosts the second round of the FIA World Endurance Championship 2024, which sees Davide Rigon at the wheel of the #54 Ferrari 296 LMGT3 of the Vista AF Corse team, after the season opener in Qatar. The 6 Hours of Imola kicks off on Sunday, April 21 at 1 p.m. (local time).

Archived the 1812 KM of Qatar with a fifth place Davide comes in front of the Italian fans with the aim of collecting more precious points for the Team and Driver classifications of the FIA Endurance Trophy.

For the first time, the Autodromo Enzo and Dino Ferrari, inaugurated in 1953 and so named since 1988 – following the death of the Maranello-based company’s founder – is hosting an FIA WEC race. The track, which measures 4.909 kilometers and includes 21 corners – 12 on the left and nine on the right – is home to the first round on European soil of a rainbow calendar that, overall, includes eight events this year.

The schedule. On Friday, April 19, the cars will be engaged in two free practice sessions, each 90 minutes long, starting at 12 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. On Saturday 20 after the third practice session, from 11:10 a.m. to 12:10 p.m., qualifying for the LMGT3 class is scheduled from 2:45 p.m.: the top ten crews will enter the Hyperpole (3:25 p.m. to 3:35 p.m.) to determine the starting grid for the first five rows. The race will start on Sunday 21 at 1 p.m. (times given are local).

Davide Rigon, 296 LMGT3 #54: “After our debut in Qatar, we have prepared ourselves in the best possible way ahead of the tricolor round of the World Endurance Championship. I hope our crew can be competitive and I think we will start to discover the values in the field since the first free practice on Friday. In Imola I expect many fans in the grandstands to support the Ferraris in both the LMGT3 and Hypercar classes: we would like to give them all a memorable weekend. The track? Imola is an ‘old school’ track, with gravel and grass bordering the asphalt ribbon. So track limits are impossible and you need flawless driving, without smearing, to be able to get results.”
