Video Presentation of the new edition
The Modena Cento Ore will take place from June 8th to 13th, 2021.
Eligible car are, as usual, all beautiful cars from the 30s to the 80s (FIA periods C to I).
As last year, we will feature a special "50's drum-braked sportscar" class with a dedicated classification and a special prize.
Participants and their support crews will enjoy a rich programme on an exceptional route, in both the Competition and the Regularity sections.
The challenge will be tough, with 3 circuit races and 9 special stages on uphill roads closed to traffic. At the end of the day participants will have the time to savour the best hotels of magnificent cities of art, dinners in unique locations, great chefs and the best Italian wines.
The grids will be limited as usual to 100 cars, to make sure that we are able to keep the tight-knit and friendly atmosphere we really care about.
The event will start with the registration on Tuesday, June 8th and will finish in Piazza Grande, in the heart of Modena, on Saturday, June 12th.
Cento Ore, one hundred memorable hours!
You can choose to battle in tough races in the Competition section or opt for a lighter but still challenging experience in the Regularity section, which follows the exact same route, including racetracks and closed road stages.
Don’t miss the opportunity to live this unique challenge with your classic car: apply soon as spaces are limited and will fill up very quickly!
