“Life is racing. Everything else is just waiting.” (Steve McQueen)

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have moved the Modena Cento Ore to October 11th - 15th, 2020.
Stay tuned for the announcement of the new itinerary.
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 4 circuit races and a dozen 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 four 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 rally will start with the registration on Sunday, October 11th* and will finish in Piazza Grande, in the heart of Modena, on Thursday, October 15th*.
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!
