June 10th, 2018 - A STANDING OVATION FOR THE 2018 EDITION OF THE "RALLY OF THE YEAR"
It’s all over!
The awards ceremony on Saturday evening has brought the 2018 edition of the Modena Cento Ore to a close.
During the awards ceremony, it was fulfilling to see how the competitors celebrated together the triumphs of some and the defeat of others after the race was over.
There again, if you were really determined to find fault with the Modena Cento Ore, the only flaw that comes to mind is that there can only be one winner.
First place this year -  but it’s nothing new - went to the English pair Philip Walker - Miles Griffiths in their 1964 Jaguar E-Type, who are becoming a familiar sight on the podium.
Among the ladies, Daniela Ellerbrock - Jackie Rohwer in their 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA left the other competitors standing, whereas Joelle Housseau - Aude Moreau dominated the regularity section in a 1972 Ferrari Dino 246 GT.
The top step on the podium for the regularity section was taken by crew 104: Ernst Schroeder - Philipp Ruppell in their 1961 Porsche 356 B
AC Owners Club were the first team in the regularity section rankings, captained by the 1959 AC ACE Bristol owned by Bertie Gilbart-Smith - Simon Kelly. The winners had a fabulous story behind them...

June 07th, 2014 - News from the organisation
We are grieved by the loss of our friend and driver Antonio Bertini, who died in an accident during a transfer.
Today, during a transfer from the Pradarena Pass to Ligonchio, crew no. 15 lost control of the car in a hairpin, and went out of the road.
Unfortunately, the driver was not wearing the safety belt in that moment.
The quick response of both the rescue team provided by the organisation and the helicopter emergency service could not save the driver.
The co-driver, who was wearing his safety belt, is unharmed.
 
We decided to cancel the last special stage and the final display in Piazza Grande. Awards will take place this evening at the Royal Palace of Modena.
