Biography

Dino Crescentini was born in the Republic of San Marino but emigrated with his family to Michigan in the United States in the 1970s. He competed at the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Olympics as a bobsledder and carried the Sammarinese flag at the Opening Ceremony.

In the later 1990s Crescentini began racing cars. He was killed in June 2008 during the 29th International Vintage Racing Festival held at Mosport Park during the Group6 race. His Wolf Dallara WD1 Can-Am car went airborne at high speed on the Mario Andretti straight, and flipped over several times before hitting a wall. Crescentini was taken to Bowmanville hospital where he was pronounced dead.
