The 1979 Dino Ferrari Grand Prix was a non-championship Formula One motor race held at the Autodromo Dino Ferrari on September 16, 1979. The event was held to practice a Formula One race at the circuit, that was supposed to hold the Italian Grand Prix every two years in turn with Monza. The 1980 Italian Grand Prix was indeed held at the Imola circuit, but the race returned permanently to Monza in 1981. The Imola circuit was given its own race from 1981-2006, the San Marino Grand Prix.
