“Life is racing. Everything else is just waiting.” (Steve McQueen)
Born at the dawn of the new Millennium, the Modena Cento Ore is a great combination of wonderful cars and gentlemen drivers, classic motorsport and tourism, exciting roads and breath-taking landscapes, culinary delights and great wines.
We are delighted to announce the 2019 edition of the Modena Cento Ore, with a great new programme including a night time race in Misano.
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 along this renovated scenic route, in both the Competition and the Regularity sections.
The challenge will be tough, with 3 circuit races in Misano, Imola and Mugello and a dozen special stages on uphill roads closed to traffic and in the Modena Circuit. At the end of the day participants will have the time to savour the best hotels of Rimini, Florence, Forte dei Marmi and Modena, 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 rally will start with the registration on Tuesday, June 4th at 13:00 in Rimini and will finish in Piazza Grande, in the heart of Modena, on Saturday, June 8th at 17:00. 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!
