MODENA CENTO ORE
Born at the dawn of the new millennium and celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2020, Modena Cento Ore is certainly the most significant international historic motor racing event in Italy.
The event is open to a maximum of 100 cars and crews, carefully selected for a unique 6-days experience of circuit races and hillclimbs, connected by scenic roads and stops in iconic cities. The rally also offers an unparalleled hospitality and a unique opportunity to discover the beauties of Italy.
The Modena Cento Ore (Cento Ore stands for one hundred hours) is a long and challenging race offering unforgettable memories to the participants and an amazing show to the public.
The unmissable arrival and “parc fermé” takes place every year in Piazza Grande, Modena, where the competitors have to cross the finish line to qualify for the final classification.
The race is organized by Scuderia Tricolore and Canossa Events, both established in the heart of the Motor Valley. Scuderia Tricolore is a sporting club born in Reggio Emilia in 1960 while Canossa Events is a leading company in the event business with offices in Italy, Dubai, New York and Miami.
The 2020 edition, originally planned on June 2-7, has been rescheduled in October.
To celebrate the Motor Valley Fest, the organisers have created some special videos, visible in this page: a tribute to the four racetracks of the Motor Valley, and to some of the most legendary racing cars from the region, starting with the Ferrari 250 SWB and the Maserati 250S.
Same kind of dream cars, but with a more leisurely approach, can be seen at the “Gran Premio delle Terre di Canossa”, a regularity rally mainly based on the provinces of Parma and Reggio. Same organization, same number of international participants, lower speed and more time for sightseeing and enjoying the scenic drives.
The 2020 edition has been shifted from April to October, hoping that by that time it will be possible to safely run the rally.
