Two months after the start of the Coppa Milano-Sanremo, registrations continue for the 12th Historical Re-enactment of Italy's most charming and historically rich race, which this year will take place from 6 to 8 May 2021. The "Lady" of the races is warming up its engines for an edition that promises to be full of novelties.
The Coppa Milano-Sanremo, for the first time in its history, will open the 2021 Italian Championship of ACI Sport, with a strong participation of ACI Storico. The Championship, reserved for classic regularity races, also includes the Coppa d'Oro delle Dolomiti, the Gran Premio Nuvolari and the Targa Florio Classica.
Participation in the race will be reserved for cars built between 1906 and 1990, with an F.I.V.A. passport, or F.I.A. Heritage sticker, or A.S.I. homologation, or A.C.I. Sport sticker, or belonging to a brand register.
The details of the 12th Historical Re-enactment:
Route: a route of over 700km, along the Milan-Rapallo-Sanremo route. The "cars of yesterday" will cross many cities of Lombardy, Piedmont and Liguria and landscapes of timeless charm.
Trials: 90 timed trials (including 6 medium), more than 50% new compared to 2019
The event will start on Thursday 6 May with the meeting of the crews at the Autodromo di Monza, where there will be technical and sporting checks, free laps on the track and the inaugural parade of the cars. In the afternoon, the cars will leave for Milan for an exclusive défilé in the heart of the city.
On Friday 7 May, the start will take place in front of the ACM headquarters in Corso Venezia, 43. During the intermediate break in Priocca d'Alba in the Langhe region, the crews will have the unique opportunity to enjoy a unique and innovative experience by visiting "Mondodelvino Wine Experience", the interactive museum dedicated to the culture of wine, unique in Italy. Arrival in Rapallo in the evening.
Saturday 8 May: departure from Rapallo and passage through the centre of Genoa in Piazza Ferraris. Intermediate break at the Yacht Club Marina di Loano. The crews will conclude the sporting part with time trials on the Ospedaletti Circuit, a symbolic place of motorsport that has seen legendary champions such as Varzi, Nuvolari and Fangio come and go throughout its history. The race will end in Sanremo with the traditional parade in Corso Matteotti. The gala dinner and the prize-giving ceremony will take place at the Casino of Sanremo.
The twelfth Rievocazione Storica will include, as per tradition, the prestigious "Coppa delle Dame" (Ladies' Cup) conceived for the first time at the beginning of the last century, thanks to the conspicuous participation of female crews and the insight of the organisers of the Coppa Milano-Sanremo.
Cars built between 1906 and 1990 will be admitted if they carry either a F.I.V.A. passport, a F.I.A. Heritage sticker, an A.S.I. homologation, an A.C.I. Sport sticker or belong to a brand register.
