Dates set for Italy’s fabulous Modena Cento Ore

| 18 Jan 2013

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.
