In what has become a full ten days of events and celebrations of the competition car, the German organising team has been adding more events to the St. Moritz Automobile Week. The Kilometre Lancé, or flying kilometre on the aerodrome, and the concours have been augmented with two tours, the Targa Poschiavo for pre-war cars and the Super Stick Shift, a tour for analogue super cars. An art exhibition, an automotive film festival, soapbox races and, new this year, a mobility forum for discussions on topics like the future of mobility and e-fuels will add to the automotive themed activities during the week commencing 2 September. There will be a Sotheby’s auction on 9 September.
All of these activities are hung around the most long-standing of the events, which is the Bernina Gran Turismo hillclimb. The 5.7km climb that runs from La Rösa to the top of the Bernina pass, over more than 50 curves, is often surprising due to the capricious mountain weather that can change in very short time and can add to the challenge.
