A motorsport first: The Coppa Milano Sanremo teams up with the Bernina Gran Turismo to make racing history

Equipe International, organizer of the Coppa Milano Sanremo, has signed an unprecedented partnership with one of the oldest motorsport contests: the Bernina Gran Turismo. From September 21 st through 23 rd this famous Swiss vintage-car rally celebrated its fourth re-enactment of the historical races that were held in the St. Moritz area in 1929 and 1930 on the 5.7 kilometer stretch of the twisting, turning, mountain road that connects Poschiavo to St. Moritz. The winner of this year’s edition, which had over 60 crews lined up on the starting line, will participate as a “special guest” at the next historical revival of the Coppa Milano Sanremo, which is scheduled to run from 28 to 30 March, 2019. Special conditions will also be reserved for all those who wish to participate in both rallies in 2019 as part of the plan to create even stronger ties between these two races, which share not only a glorious tradition, but also many common values such as: the sporting spirit of “gentlemen drivers”, glamor, exclusive locals and participation by a select, limited number of crews. More information and further details regarding the special conditions reserved for participants in both rallies will be announced during a press-conference to present the 11 th Historical Revival of the Coppa Milano Sanremo scheduled for October 18 th at the Hotel Melià in Milan.

This edition marks a return in grand style for Italy’s oldest open-road rally, which reappeared on international race calendars last March.

The last day for entry registration is scheduled for the 28th of February.

One of the major “news” items for 2019: from Sanremo the racecars will proceed in caravan to the prestigious streets of the Principality of Monaco—another crown jewel of international motorsports—for the Coppa Milano Sanremo 2019 awards ceremony, which will be held during an exclusive gala dinner at the Fairmont Hotel in Monte Carlo.

A lot of exciting news—and many surprises—will be disclosed during a press conference to present the race on October 18, 2018 in Milan.

Although Italy’s oldest road competition had been off the road for seven years, it fielded 70 teams who registered to cover the distance from Milan to San Remo, despite the challenging weather, which included snow on the Faiallo Pass that obliged the organisers to cancel some of the trials prove scheduled for the second, decisive day that ended this evening with the award ceremony in San Remo. Coming in second place, with only 14.18 points of difference was the Salviato-Moglia duo in a 1971 Fiat 128 Rally 1300, while the third step on the podium went to Dell’Acqua and Vicari in a 1970 Fiat 850 Sport Coupé, who marked up 37.7 points behind the winners.

The outright winners Salvinelli and Ceccardi won two prestigious tabletop clocks offered by IWC, while many prizes were also offered by the sponsors: Ermenegildo Zegna conferred the “Elegance Award” on the Basilico-Cappella team in its 1951 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Villa d’Este, Bosch presented the “Safe Car” Award for safe driving to the Sardi-Bambini team in its 1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1300 Ti and Alcar presented the prize to the winners of the Reliability Trials, the Büchl-Büchl team in its 1957 Porsche 356 A 1600 Speedster. The Ladies’ Cup was won by the Russian team of Lepetukhina and Titova in a 1957 Fiat Abarth 750, while the Dynastic Orders’ Trophy for Fair Play was presented by HRH Prince Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy to the Yukinobu-Akira team in a 1927 Lancia Lambda. JetFly singled out the 1955 Comelli Ferrari 857 S Monza as the most representative car in the race. The Targa Maserati Best of Show Plaque was already presented to the Prevosti 1954 Maserati 250 S Prototype and the Pirelli Track Performance Award to the Moroni-Moroni duo in its 1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ during the inaugural dinner at the Hotel Melia in Milan.

EVERYTHING IS READY FOR THE START OF THE COPPA MILANO-SANREMO

Official presentation of the new route, the sponsors and the crews

15 March 2018 – We are now exactly a week away from the start of the Coppa Milano-Sanremo, a
historical revival—included for the first time in the Italian Automobile Club’s (ACI) Super Classic
Trophy—of the oldest race in Italy (the first edition was in 1906), which will be ran over some of the
most fascinating and tortuous roads of the Italian peninsula from the 22 nd to the 24 th of March.
Everything is ready for the start of the race. After technical and pre-rally checks at the Autodromo
Nazionale Monza and a parade of the cars through the streets of Milan the day before, the
participants will leave from Piazza Castello for an intermediate stop at Rapallo before proceeding on
to Sanremo and the Riviera dei Fiori.
The preparations for this new edition continue unabated. The organization has already selected over
70 prestigious, historical cars that were built between 1906 and 1976 to participate. The many foreign
crews participating underscore the importance of the race, both in its category, and for its many fans
around the world.
Among the cars in the race, the veteran among the veterans will be a 1926 Fiat 509S driven by HRH
Prince Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy, accompanied by such masterpieces as: a 1953 Maserati A6GCS-53
Berlinetta Pininfarina (from the Matteo Panini collection), a 1939 Bugatti Stelvio, a 1952 Aston Martin
DB2 and a 1960 DB4, a 1954 Ermini 1100 Sport International, a 1954 OSCA MT4 1100 Sport, a 1951
Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Villa d'Este, a 1964 Alfa Giulia TZ1, a 1957 ACE Bristol Roadster, a 1957
Porsche 356 A 1600 Speedster and a historical contender making its grand return—a Fiat Colli, which
participated in the 12 th edition of the race in 1948.
The 2018 edition of the Cup has some exceptional partners: Maserati, the main official sponsor of the
event and promoter of the Maserati Tribute, the "race in the race", IWC Schaffahausen, the official
timekeeper, Pirelli, Bosch and Ermenegildo Zegna, to add a touch of elegance to the event.
The new—heavily modified from previous editions—route will touch Lombardy, Piedmont and Liguria
in a journey of over 600 kilometres and will include more than 60 total timed-trials: 52 special and 6
medium (with intermediate measurements).
The event gets underway early on Thursday, March 22 nd , 2018 with a meeting of the teams at the
Autodromo Nazionale Monza for technical and pre-rally checks, and a few warm-up laps around the

legendary Formula 1 racetrack before the start of the inaugural parade of the historical automobiles
through the centre of Monza and on to Milan. After a genuine défilé de mode through the heart of
Milan’s fashion district, the cars will go down the world-famous via Monte Napoleone and continue
on to the shadow of the Milan Cathedral, where they will be officially presented to the public.
On Friday morning, March 23 rd , the drivers will queue their automobiles behind the starting line in
Piazza Castello to begin the planned 600-kilometre open-road rally. After traveling through the
countryside of Lombardy and Piedmont, the cars will make their first scheduled stop at the historical
Villa Sparina, near Gavi, before setting off through the extraordinary landscapes of the Ligurian
hinterland for their evening destination of Rapallo, where a nautical themed gala diner will be held at
the port of Carlo Riva’s Yatch Club.
Saturday, March 24 th will be the decisive day for the teams as they face the last time trials. From
Rapallo, they will pass close by La Superba and stop at the enchanting Villa Ottolenghi—once owned
by Count Ottolenghi, the winner of the 1929 edition—at Acqui Terme, before traveling over insidious
curves of the Faiallo Pass, Bric Barton Pass, the Melogno Hill, the Scravaion Hill and the San
Bartolomeo Hill before descending towards the finish line at Sanremo, where they should arrive
around 6:00 – 8:00 in the evening.
The 2018 edition will bestow no less than 20 titles of honor on the participants: the first 10 generally
classified crews, the first 3 classified in each category, the first 3 classified in the overall average-
speed trials, the first team overall and the first under-thirty crew.
As per tradition, the first-place female crew, which besides possibly winning the overall title, will be
awarded the coveted "Coppa delle Dame" (Ladies’ Cup), which is also called "La perla di Sanremo"
(The Pearl of Sanremo). As far back as 1929, there were 5 female crews competing for this award.
Also, the House of Savoy will award a special symbolic prize—the Dynastic Order of the Royal House
of Savoy Trophy in honor of Prince Adalberto who won the 1933 edition—to the crew that exhibits an
outstanding sporting and chivalrous spirit during the course of the rally.
The race will also feature personalities from the "automotive jet set" including Prisca Taruffi, who will
present the second edition of the Volpe Argentata Event (Silver Fox Event), thirty years after the
death of her father, the legendary driver, Piero Taruffi, during the final award ceremony in Sanremo.

Pirelli: The Perfect Race

A Selection Of Images From The Photographic Archive Of The Pirelli Foundation
To Tell A Story Of Speed, Machines, Achievements.
 
It is the “perfect race”, the primary idea behind the whole history of motor racing, to be tackled on roads open to the public,
with absolutely standard cars and excellent tires, whatever the weather. It was on the other hand already for
the Beijing-Paris of 1907: an Itala of normal production, equipped with tires produced in the Pirelli factory in Milan.
At the wheel for seventeen thousand kilometers the noble Scipione Borghese. Immediately after – in 1908 – it was Giulio Sirtori who
led a Züst through America, in the New York-Paris raid. With Pirelli always present.
The Pirelli Superflex Cord tires from the 1920s and 1930s helped to create the legend of motoring on the road: from the Coppa della Consuma,
to the Targa Florio, from the Mille Miglia to the Alpine passes of the Coppa delle Dolomiti. There was also Pirelli at the
Milan-Sanremo Cup, the most classic of the automotive Granturismo that for years was the ideal catwalk for the most
elegant cars in history. There was then Pirelli, there is also today.
