The Scuderia Cassia Corse event takes a leap forward this year in terms of quality, with a formula renewed in many respects
The Firenze-Siena run, 84 km immersed in a succession of wonderful hilly Tuscan scenarios, is animated by a spirit of authentic passion for heritage cars and by the joy of meeting, year after year, among affectionate crews even from abroad. The first edition dates back to 1954, when the race against time between the two Tuscan cities was won by Eugenio Castellotti, the driver of the golden year of competitions who won the most victories in the Mille Miglia. Even his car was exceptional, nothing less than a Lancia D24, with which he crossed the finish line maintaining an average of 130 km / h. Too see how the last re-enactment went, in 2021, click here.
Re-enacted every year by the Scuderia Cassia Corse 264 Storica. The Florence-Siena route, today as then, crosses the Chianti Classico along the old Cassia and leads to fully savor the peculiarities of the territory, touching places such as San Casciano, Tavarnelle, Barberino, Colle Val d’Elsa and Monteriggioni. This year there will be many new features, such as a sensory journey dedicated to Tuscan extra virgin olive oil accompanied by live music.
With an exceptional forerunner. The result will be a weekend based on the mechanics of yesteryear full of emotions and full of fun, even convivial, including food and wine discoveries, fascinating places and cultural moments. The splendid Castello di Montegufoni, another new entry of this edition, built about twenty km south of Florence on an original medieval structure will be the basis. Participation is open to a maximum of 40 crews in cars of historical interest built by 1970. The only exception is the new Italian super car Pambuffetti, which will act as a spectacular forerunner for the first time.
