Dates set for Italy’s fabulous Modena Cento Ore


Sports cars from the likes of Ferrari, Porsche, Alfa Romeo and AC will tackle the 800km route through Italy on the 12th Modena Cento Ore from 4-9 June.

More than 50 cars are expected for the competition and regularity tour, which weaves through Emilia-Romagna (Motor Valley), Tuscany and the roads of the Mille Miglia.

Competitors will complete 10 special stages in the Apennine Mountains and 40 time trials on closed roads, plus track time at circuits such as Modena and Mugello.

Last year’s contest for pre-’65 cars was won by Thomas Studer and Patrick Wäspe in a Shelby Mustang GT350.  Second place went to Douglas Allen and David Mountford in a Ford Falcon, while the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider of Francesco Ferretti and Emanuele Filini took third.

Pierangelo Masselli and Paolo Valmassoi driving a Ferrari 308GTB triumphed in the competition for younger machines, while top spot on the regularity rally was secured by Luca and Andrea Bortolotti in a 2.4S Porsche Targa.

Entry into the competition costs £4105 and £3686 for the timed runs.

I was talking to a mate about this recently at one of the local BMW service centres in our area. We gathered that the previous race was exciting and thrilling, and we hoped to watch this year’s race for the same reason. Although we are BMW fanatics, we hope to see the Porsche in action more than anything else. Apart from the power and performance of the Porsche, we liked the classic look of the car. Hopefully, we will have the time to watch this race.
