The Modena Cento Ore is 20-years-old, and to celebrate, a special 20th anniversary edition is planned for 2-7 June, featuring a long-awaited departure from the Eternal City. Competitors will spend two nights in Rome and two nights in Florence with, as always, the prize-giving and final night in Modena. Circuits next year will be Vallelunga, Magione, Mugello and Imola and Luigi Orlandini and his team at Canossa Events have promised “some new, great special stages.” With both competition and regularity categories for cars up to the ‘80s (Period I), a ‘50s drum-braked sports car class with its own classification and special prizes was introduced last year to try to encourage more early cars. Previous entrants took priority until 31 October, and entries are now open to all online at www.modenacentooreclassic.it.
