We're back on the road!
In the past months we had to shake up our calendar, cancelling or postponing all events, but we are now ready to get back on track with a new, safe program for all car lovers.
While we eagerly wait to restart the engines of our passion, I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable time!
Chairman & CEO
First of all, all our rallies will be carefully planned in order to grant the highest safety standard. Face masks and hand sanitizer will be part of the experience as well as petrol and road books, but masks will not prevent us from smiling and laughing!
The first rendezvous is Stella Alpina, from June 26 to 28. The rally will be limited to 40 cars to allow for the necessary distance in social moments. Three days of scenic drives, winding roads and majestic mountains. Registration open until June 15!
As our friends from America will hardly be able to join our rallies in Italy, we are planning to bring a touch of Italy to America in our Canossa Grand Tour in Central California, open to all Italian collector's cars.
We hope to be able to make it happen in the second half of August. Stay tuned!
On September 4 – 6 we will return in the Alps with a new driving tour designed for the most demanding gourmets: a magnificent combination of Michelin Stars and sharp hairpin bends. We will drive on the famous “four passes” around Mt. Sella and savour the recipes of four great chefs and friends: Norbert Niederkofler, Paolo Donei, Renzo Dal Farra and Sergio Rossi.
Terre di Canossa has been moved to October 1 – 4 with a slightly modified program to allow proper distancing in social moments. Being the planned venue not suitable, the special opening dinner for the 10th edition will be postponed to 2021, when we will celebrate the 10th anniversary.
Similarly, Modena Cento Ore will be held on October 11 – 15 with a suitably adjusted itinerary but with the same great atmosphere. Registrations are closed for both Terre di Canossa and Modena Cento Ore. All entrants will receive up-to-date information on a regular basis.
We will then return to the United States from October 15 – 18 with our “Fall Rallye” in New England, spanning from the majestic cliffs of the coastline of Maine to the autumn-coloured forests of the White Mountains in New Hampshire, ending with an adrenaline burst at Club Motorsport circuit.
The year will end in the sun of the Middle-East. While we had to postpone to 2021 Arabian Roads, our great adventure across the Arabian peninsula, we will gather the end of November in the United Arab Emirates for a tour from the deserts to mountains and the seas of Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Ras Al Khaimah.
Last but not least, we are happy to present our new Motor Valley Tours. A great way to spend three days in the “land of slow food and fast cars” driving an Abarth 595 cabriolet from our fleet, exclusively tailored by Garage Italia. Based in Modena, the tours will focus on the Italian temples of speed, the great food and the beauties of the region.
All our 2020 rallies and tours will be carbon neutral thanks to the adoption of the “CarbonZero” protocol (ISO14064) and to the compensation of residual CO2 emissions by planting new trees in the Apennines.
Programs may be subject to last-minute changes and our long-term planning habits will be substituted this year by a just-in-time organisation. That's why we will grant flexible registration and cancellation policies in all our events: no one will lose a penny of his paid entry fee!
