Event Highlights

Italian rally master Lucio di Mori is working on a route that will take us straight into the tremendous roads of the Ligurian Alps and then onwards towards the Italian Lakes. From there, over some high passes and into the Dolomites, we will spend two nights in Cortina d’Ampezzo, an important venue in the story of historic rallying. While we may be here for two nights, there is no rest day as we shall be revelling in the roads that were used in the epic Coppa d’Oro delle Dolomiti that was held from 1947 to 1956, rivalling the Mille Miglia for notoriety.

Leaving the hills behind we make for historic Verona, the home of Romeo and Juliet. Then it’s on towards the Adriatic coast and a quick stop in the Republic of San Marino to add another country to our “visited list”. We then head to Tuscany, with some of the greatest rallying roads in the world, and a host of major motor racing circuits on which to hold Tests along the way.

After a night in a splendid Tuscan resort we will head north-west to the Mediterranean coast for our final night before the finish. More incredible, mountain roads will take us back to Sanremo for a mid-afternoon finish after ten stunning days of driving.
