The Classic Paddock sponsored event, scheduled from August 24th to 26th, 2023, redefines the concept of regularity racing by introducing unique and innovative elements in a territory, the Aosta Valley, where culture, history, tradition, and natural wonders blend together in an elegant and refined setting.
Cisalpina Classic Race is a high-profile motoring experience conceived by the expertise of organizer Roberto Crugnola, CEO & Founder of Classic Paddock, who, together with Riccardo Aspesi, has developed a format that breaks the usual conventions and introduces innovative elements and unexplored scenarios. It all starts with the incomparable beauty of the Aosta Valley, its roads, and above all, its mountain passes: Cisalpina Classic Race participants will cross five of them, ranging from the 1640 meters of the Col de Joux to the 2469 meters of the Colle del Gran San Bernardo. The route, divided into two stages and covering just under 500 kilometers, will have the picturesque village of La Salle as the starting and finishing location. This ancient village is immersed in an atmosphere of serenity and natural beauty, perched in an enchanting position on gentle slopes and surrounded by orchards and vineyards. It is there that the headquarters of Cisalpina Classic Race is located, in the refined premises of the Mont Blanc Relais, where participants will stay for the duration of the event and have access to the impressive Spa carved into the rock, from check-in until Sunday afternoon.
The competitive aspect of Cisalpina Classic Race will be based on over 100 timed trials, including classic regularity and average trials. It will be a challenging race, but not stressful, enjoyable for both professionals and novice partecipants, and designed to accommodate the ambitions of the most competitive foreign teams. Lastly, in the unfortunate event of a breakdown, the organization provides three classic cars to continue experiencing the Cisalpina Classic Race.
Cisalpina Classic Race is a Superclassic event on the ACI Sport calendar for vintage and youngtimer cars produced until 1990, and it is also valid for the newly Italian Grand Events Championship for modern Supercars and Gran Turismo. Technical and sports checks will take place on Thursday, August 24th. The next day, Friday 25th, the first stage will begin, followed by the decisive second stage on the following day, concluding with a gala dinner and awards ceremony. On Sunday, it will be a day for relax and greetings only.
