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.

Modena Cento Ore Classic, an event unique in Italy and in the world.
 
Dream cars, oil and gasoline, track races and mountain hillclimbs, wonderful landscapes and exciting roads, renowned chefs and great wines. All of this is the legendary Modena Cento Ore Classic, a unique event in Italy, one of the best in the world.
The 2014 edition of the Modena Cento Ore Classic, organised by Scuderia Tricolore of Reggio Emilia, is warming its engines: 70 wonderful classic cars will challenge each other and parade on the roads and in the circuits of Emilia and Tuscany from 3 to 8 June.
 
The rally starts on Wednesday, 5 June from Piazza XXV Maggio, Rubiera, where the splendid cars, lined up in front of the Fort, will be presented to the public by the voice of Savina Confaloni at 9.30. The first car of the competition section starts at 10.00.
 
As usual, the 2014 Modena Cento Ore Classic takes place in a span of six days, four of which will see the competitors drive for around 1000 km along the most beautiful panoramic roads of Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany, starting and ending in Modena, the heart of the Motor Valley, with a stop in Florence, cradle of the Italian art and Renaissance, and in Forte dei Marmi, fashionable centre of the Versilia.
 
It is a really tough race: the competition section features 25 sectors, 13 special stages on closed mountain roads and 2 spectacular circuit races with a starting grid, in the world-famous circuits of Imola and Mugello.
The “regularity” section follows the same route as the competition one, with 13 average speed trials that will be held on the same roads of the special stages, which will be closed to the traffic, and with many laps around the tracks of the two circuits.

February 01st, 2014 - Modena Cento Ore Classic 2014 ‘Life is Racing. Everything else is just waiting’ (Steve McQueen)
There is a place in Italy which gave birth to some of the greatest creators of sports cars ever. Today this place is still home to some of the world’s most famous manufacturers of “dreams on four wheels”. In 2000, at the beginning of the new millennium, a group of car enthusiasts from Modena started this project, which quickly became one of the most appreciated events by collectors and gentlemen drivers from all over the world.
 
Dream cars, oil and gasoline, track races and mountain hillclimbs, wonderful landscapes and exciting roads, award-winning chefs and great wines. All of this is the legendary Modena Cento Ore Classic, a unique event in Italy, one of the best in the world.

On the occasion of the Fiera di Padova, at the Automobile Club d’Italia stand, Scuderia Tricolore, in partnership with Canossa Events, presented its new racing events, in the presence of Angelo Sticchi Damiani, Chairman of the ACI.
The thirteenth edition of the Modena Cento Ore Classic will be held from 3 to 8 June, between Modena and Florence, with 12 Special Stages and two races inside the Mugello and Imola circuits.

As always, both the cars and the drivers will be highly selected: it will be impossible to see a similar gathering of such wonderful cars! (www.modenacentooreclassic.it)
