Here is the 2013 'Winter'! 450 km, 12 hour, 11 passes, 40 trials and 2 circuits
During the preview day of the 29th Auto and Moto d'Epoca Expo in Padova the main new aspects of the 25th Winter Marathon were revealed; the classic regularity event for historic cars included among the 'Great Events' in the CSAI calendar will take place from 24 to 27 January 2013 in Madonna di Campiglio. The Organizing Committee, counting on the presence of an average number of 190 crews taking part in each event in the last five years, has not spared the novelties. First of all a longer and more demanding route than the previous year (450 kilometres instead of the 410 of 2012), where the cars will face 11 dolomites passes, four of them over 2.000 meters (Pordoi, Falzarego, Valparola and Gardena). In addition to this, 40 precision time trials, all very technical and 'unforeseeable', 8 of them divided between the well-known and appreciated Safety Park driving centre in Vadena (Bz) and the new Snow Ice in Cortina d'Ampezzo, a track completely covered by snow near Cortina, which will offer all competitors 2 kilometers of pure fun with curves, reverse curves and skids. Another important change is the new location for the dinner of Friday: the crews will enjoy some local specialties at the Hotel Lupo Bianco on the road to Pordoi pass, hoping for a massive snowfall that would cover roads and make the driving difficult but at the same time funnier. The arrival at the final time control in Folgarida, scheduled at 2.30 hrs on Saturday 26 January after 12 hours of continuous race, will anticipate the usual final parade in Piazza Righi in Madonna di Campiglio; afterwards, the well-deserved rest until 13.30 hrs on the same Saturday, when the show will start again on the frozen lake in Madonna di Campiglio with traditionals MotorStorica and TAG Heuer Barozzi trophies. Next appointment on Friday 16 November at the Centro Porsche Brescia Saottini in Desenzano del Garda, where the event will be officially presented at the presence of Authorities and Sponsors.http://www.wintermarathon.it/percorso.php

The organizing machine is already at work to study and prepare every detail of the event, making it even more unique and international, on the strength of the positive trend of its management that made an average of 190 crews taking part in every edition of the race (from all Europe), with the participation of numerous pre-war cars which are difficult to be seen in other events, particularly in winter (facilitated by a coefficient that improves their performance in the race compared to their 'younger colleagues'). Among the confirmations, appreciated by the participants in the last years, the top-level hospitality (all crews will be accomodated in 4-5 star hotels in the centre of Madonna di Campiglio) and from the sports point of view, the great attention given to every detail, starting from an always different route marked by many technical precision time trials. Significant as always the support of important Companies that are already fully embracing the project, trusting such a unique event that, in view of the 25th edition, will enjoy more innovations confirming the best that has been done so far.
