June 8, 2021: Today the registered crews met up at the Grand Hotel in Rimini to check in their cars before parking up in the adjacent Federico Fellini Park.
84 crews from 19 countries have registered to take part, a very respectable number in light of the tight travel restrictions still imposed by several countries.
According to tradition, the level of the cars entering the Modena Cento Ore is very high. They will be competing in two main sections, speed and regularity, driving on roads in central and northern Italy, with three races on the track (Misano World Circuit, the Autodromo Enzo and Dino Ferrari at Imola, and the Mugello Circuit), and 10 special uphill stages on roads closed to normal traffic. The Super Special Stage on the racetrack at the Modena Circuit will bring events to a close with a special day of celebrations marking the arrival of the Modena Cento Ore and its 10th anniversary. The cars entered in the rally include 20 Porsches, 11 Alfa Romeos, 10 Ferraris and 9 Fords (or derivatives). Some of the cars taking part are extremely rare, such as the 1952 Jaguar C-Type, a 1960 and a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Competizione, a Porsche 904 Carrera GTS, and a pre-war BMW 328. Alfa Romeo is well represented with no less than 8 Giulia Sprint GTAs, all from 1965, accompanied by 7 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1750 GT Ams, all from 1971. Two very good vintages indeed..
