COPPA MILANO–SANREMO AND BACK: COMPETION COMPETITION GETS TOUGH
23 – 26 MARCH 2023
The race continues through the breathtaking landscapes of the Ligurian coast and backcountry
Milan, 25 March 2023
The third day of racing of the XIV Rievocazione Storica della Coppa Milano Sanremo and back started this morning from the old station of the city of Sanremo, the famous City of Flowers, which enthusiastically welcomed the crews of the event last night on their arrival in the city centre.
The classic enthusiasts this morning tackled again the Colle d’Oggia and then passed through the medieval village of Zuccarello before arriving at the sea for a light lunch at the prestigious Yacht Club of Marina di Loano.
In the afternoon, passing through Colle del Melogno and Pontinvrea, they will arrive in the heart of Genova, the final destination of the day, where the exclusive gala dinner will take place in an evocative location: the Aquarium of Genova.
The competition will see the Ligurian territory as the protagonist of the third day of competition with its timelessly fascinating landscapes and picturesque villages that will host the decisive stages of the Historical Re-enactment.
Tomorrow, Sunday 26 March, will be the decisive day, which will see yesterday’s racing cars – after a passage in Piazza De Ferrari in the centre of Genova – tackle the climb of Monte Fasce and Uscio, cross the territories of the Portello pass and Mongiardino Ligure to then arrive in Milan, where after a spectacular arrival in the heart of the historic centre, the final prize-giving ceremony will be held at the headquarters of the AC Milano in Corso Venezia, which this year celebrates 120 years of activity. An important milestone that the Coppa Milano Sanremo is honoured to celebrate, sharing with the renowned club the spirit and culture of the cars that have made history.
Competition, spectacularity, tradition and savoir faire have always made the Coppa Milano-Sanremo an unmissable appointment with a unique and exclusive charm thanks to the same spirit as always and the same passion of the gentlemen drivers who conceived it in 1906. The “Lady” of the races is offering the over one hundred participating crews an edition full of unmissable logistical and sporting novelties along a revolutionary route of over 900 kilometres through the territories of Lombardy, Piedmont and Liguria with over 115 special stages.
Within this fourteenth Historical Re-enactment will be held, as per tradition, the prestigious “Coppa delle Dame”, conceived for the first time at the beginning of the last century, thanks to the conspicuous participation of female crews and the intuition of the organisers of the Coppa Milano-Sanremo. Many, then, are the elements that distinguish and contribute to recall the timeless charm of the Coppa Milano-Sanremo, which over the years has seen great champions of the wheel and illustrious personalities of the international jet set race, testifying to the exclusivity and uniqueness of the race, which combines tradition, competition, elegance and savoir faire in a perfect mix.
