The San Marino and Rimini Coast's motorcycle Grand Prix is a motorcycling event that is part of the World Motorcycle Racing season. The name of the race is a misnomer as the race has always taken place in Italy, but because there is already an Italian motorcycle Grand Prix, it was called the San Marino Grand Prix because of the track's location near San Marino.

History[edit]

The inaugural San Marino Grand Prix was held in 1981 at the Autodromo Dino Ferrari, then moved to the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello for the 1982 race. In 1983, they returned to the Autodromo Dino Ferrari and in 1984 they once again returned to the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello. From the 1985 season onwards the venue hosting the San Marino round was the Circuito Internazionale Santa Monica.

The round was taken off the calendar in 1988 but got added back in 1991, this time on the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello. The round was not present in 1992 due to Bernie Ecclestone and the IRTA meddeling with the selected grands prix chosen (see the FIM–IRTA war for more information on that) but returned in the 1993 on the same venue as before.

After that, the San Marino round was taken off the calendar for the 1994 season and it would take 13 years before the San Marino race would return in the 2007 season, where it has stayed on the calendar ever since.
