Kilomètre Lancé

Amongst the activities comprising St Moritz Speed Week, or to give it its proper name the Internationale St. Moritzer Automobilwoche, is the much touted Kilomètre Lancé, which last year attracted record-breaking cars and motorbikes from owners and museums out onto the Samedan airfield to test their powers of acceleration.  Entry is now open for this year’s event, with priority given to cars from the years of 1929 and 1930, the years the original event took place.  Vehicles are not limited to the pre-war years, and all Grand Prix cars of any age are welcome, as are modern cars and bikes of particular interest.  When its over, historic and interesting planes are invited for a fly-in.  It is the opening event of Automobile week and takes place on 8-11 September.  Contact for entries for this and other Speed Week activities.
