Reggio Emilia, 30th March 2022
21st – 24th April 2022: Terre di Canossa is good to go! This year’s rally will cover a distance of around 670 km, including 25 Timed Trials and 4 Average Speed Trials that will get the competitive juices flowing, even if this year’s main focus will be about enjoying the event and the places we will be passing through. Terre di Canossa is a winning combination of fantastic cars and gentlemen drivers who come here from far afield to enjoy the opportunity to get a special taste of Italy, combining the adrenalin of the competition with the delights of the best Italian food and wine, and the chance to explore the areas en route.
What’s new in the 12th edition
For the first time, this year’s Terre di Canossa is a regularity rally opening the doors so that young co-drivers starting from the age of 14 can also enjoy this wonderful experience.
Another fabulous new addition is the focus on the lush Garfagnana area, giving the crews the chance to really experience it to the full: two evening events and overnight stays will be in this unique area of Tuscany. To make the most of the many wonderful beauty spots, two of our lunches have been organised at the coast: on Friday we will have the enchanting Bay of Poets as backdrop and on Saturday participants will enjoy one of Forte dei Marmi’s most glamorous beaches in Versilia.
Some of the most popular ideas introduced over the years have been confirmed for this edition: setting off from the beautiful Art Nouveau town of Salsomaggiore Terme; the gala dinner designed by a renowned Michelin starred chef from the local area, held in the enchanting setting of the Tabiano Castle; the challenge of crossing Passo Cento Croci and Passo Pradarena; the road through Cinque Terre with its picturesque views, and driving through some of the most beautiful art cities in Tuscany such as Pisa and Lucca.
The organisers have reconfirmed their eco-friendly outlook, making Terre di Canossa a Zero-Impact event. Once again a CarbonZero protocol will be implemented this year, requiring measures to be employed that can help reduce the impact on the environment, calculating the residual emissions of climate-altering gases. These emissions are then entirely compensated by planting trees in the Tuscan Emilian Apennine Mountains.
