Once again the Coppa Giulietta&Romeo is preparing to open the 2022 season of the Automobile Club Verona and not only, since it will be the opening round of the Italian Historic Car Regularity Championship. Registration opened today for one of the most popular events on the Italian calendar. The event organised by the Automobile Club Verona in collaboration with ACI Verona Sport and A.C. Verona Historic will take place on 4-5 February, continuing a tradition that to date has brought success.
The working team has already put together the most important pieces of the puzzle, including those relating to the route and surveys. Although it is a phrase that often accompanies new editions, this time it is really the case to say that there will be no lack of novelties and changes compared to 2021.
The most striking innovation, with the reconfirmation of Lake Garda and Bardolino as the main focus of the event, will be the return of Verona to the route. The city was in fact involved before the event obtained the CIREAS title and was renamed Coppa Giulietta&Romeo, so it can be said without doubt that for the race it will be a baptism with flakes.
The chronometric readings will remain the same as those provided by the rules of the series, but the batteries will change since the route will be significantly revised and will also address some roads of important territorial value and landscape.
Great attention will be paid to the environmental impact. An important study carried out in collaboration with Treebu, a Verona-based start-up committed to reducing the polluting footprint of everyday life, has defined a green initiative of considerable importance that will be closely linked to the 2022 edition of the Coppa Giulietta&Romeo and the participating crews.
"We have always had great satisfaction from the Giulietta&Romeo Cup," commented President Baso, "last year everything went perfectly, we went through enchanting scenery, the sporting challenge did us credit and we received enthusiastic comments.
It started off as a bet, but objectively it has become a very demanding event," added Director Riccardo Cuomo, "and this will also be the case in 2022, both for the purely sporting part and for the whole emergency containment aspect. The race will have to comply with protocols that we are now very familiar with, and this means extra attention for all the staff. Last year, at the end of the event, we collected as usual all the hot impressions from the competitors, with many compliments and some suggestions for improvement. The Coppa Giulietta&Romeo is becoming a reference for the speciality and we are very proud of it".
