Entry list grows for 2013’s punishing Winter Marathon

1

The promise of tough winter conditions and a 500km route snaking from Madonna di Campiglio and back via Canzei, have attracted 160 entries for this year’s Winter Marathon in Italy from 24-27 January.

Last year’s rally attracted 158 cars, almost a quarter of which succumbed to ice and blizzards leaving the father and daughter team of Ezio and Francesca Salviato to earn top spot in their 1939 Lancia Aprilia (bottom).

This year is set to be just as competitive with 24 marques represented including cars such as a 1938 Jaguar SS100, a 1957 BMW 507, a 1965 Mini Cooper ‘S’, a 1959 Abarth 750 Zagato, a 1959 Jensen 541R, a 1965 Ford Cortina GT and a 1964 Saab 96.

Porsches make up the lion’s share of the entry list, though, with a 1968 911S, a 1956 356A Speedster and a 1955 356 coupé representing just a few of the 49 Stuttgart-built entries.

A 1925 Bentley 3 Litre will be the oldest machine to compete.

Wow...!! A race of the vintage classics on snow..!! Worth watching almost 90 year old cars racing in the event.Also I'm impressed with a look at the number of Porsche cars participating in the event.The driving conditions are gonna be pretty tough and severe with a lot of obstacles on the way.The rest is to be seen and discovered whether these old timers can gracefully complete the race beating all the odds.
