It is going to be an unparalleled fifteenth edition for the Modena Cento Ore, and it will be held from June 2nd to 7th. To celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of this event in the right way, Luigi Orlandini created a one-off edition that will see the crews driving for four days on the most beautiful roads that connect Rome, Perugia, Florence and Modena, with four famous circuits (Vallelunga, Magione, Mugello and Imola) and thirteen special stages on roads closed to the public.
The event will cross Italy from north to south in a succession of spectacular stages, which the spectators will also have the opportunity to watch in breathtaking locations. On June 3rd, the wonderful cars will show up in Rome, at the Vallelunga Circuit, in Ronciglione, Viterbo, Bolsena and Orvieto; on 4th June in Perugia, at the Magione Circuit, in Cortona, Arezzo, Reggello and Florence; on June 5th again in Florence, then at the Mugello Circuit and at the Giogo and Futa passes; on June 6th in Firenzuola, at the Sambuca pass and at the Imola Circuit, and then at 17.00 the competitors will enjoy a well-deserved warm welcome from the crowd at the arrival in Piazza Grande, Modena, under the shade of the Ghirlandina.
The same attention for every detail will be applied to the three exclusive evenings: the opening in the heart of Rome, the Gala Soirée in the centre of Florence and the final evening in the charming city of Modena.
Modena Cento Ore is a perfect mix of prestigious cars, gentlemen drivers, competition, tourism, gastronomy and travelling.
As usual, both the Competition and Regularity sections will share the same route, circuits, uphill timed trials and evenings. Indeed, all the competitors will enjoy the best hotels in Rome, Perugia, Florence and Modena, lunches and dinners in unique locations, the creations of the best chefs, the best local wines and the warm and refined atmosphere which characterises every event planned by Canossa Events.
“The Modena Cento Ore is one of the most important “real” races in the world now”, says Luigi Orlandini, Chairman of the Scuderia Tricolore and ingenious founder of Canossa Events. “it is the only event in Italy where the competitors can challenge each other on more than one circuit and in special stages on roads closed to the public. Definitely the only one with such a high level of hospitality and attention to detail. Furthermore, and I can say this with great pride, it is also the only one to have such a tight, motivated and passionate team, something that is noted by all the participants of our events. It is quite clear how much we are driven and united by our passion”.
The words of Orlandini have been confirmed by the incredible success of the event, which this year closed its applications a month earlier than expected with the selection of 80 crews among the 140 applications received.
