23 Sep In South Tyrol for the Dolomiti IRA Classic 2019
It is always a privilege to participate in the Dolomiti IRA Classic historical cars’ gather of the Veteran Car Team Bolzano.
It will be for the impeccable organization, or for the beauty of the places crossed, or perhaps for the spirit of friendship that animates the participants even during the fifty timed trials.
Be that as it may, I accepted with enthusiasm the invitation of Davide Brancalion, president of the Club, and on the morning of Saturday 21 September I was punctually in Piazza Walther, in the center of Bolzano, for the technical checks of my first series Jaguar E Type.
From Bolzano a journey has begun that has brought about fifty participants’ historic cars – even from northern Germany – to Renon, passing through historic villages and meeting wonderful mountain landscapes, which the perfect weather made even more vivid in colors.
A stop in Terlano, another to Ritter, and here we are in the welcoming Hotel Saslong in Santa Cristina for dinner and overnight stay.
The next morning we reached Monte Pana, a plateau with a view of the Sassolungo and Sassopiatto Dolomite boulders, for the latest regularity tests. The morning ended with a “pasta party” and the awards ceremony.
