Youngtimer Cup 2023 – Mugello Circuit

The Youngtimer Cup is the Canossa Events’ championship that brings the cars that raced between 1991 and 2005 back to the track arena

May 5, 2023: In the first round of the Youngtimer Cup championship we attended an entertaining show, with drivers who didn’t save their energy on the track, but, got out of their cars, they face the paddock with the utmost fair play, enjoying the spirit of these events.

The leitmotif of the weekend is the comparison between different styles of racing cars. On one side there is the Marcos Mantis; a classic British with a chassis built in the late nineties which was combined with a powerful 4.600cc Ford Mustang Cobra engine. The result was a project of a pure and hard racing car, all bonnet with 360hp and some flaws, never hidden by the manufacturer, to bring out the skills of real drivers. Opposed against this, there are the German BMW M3, both in the group N version and in the more elaborate version for the VLN, and the Porsche 911 in the Carrera Cup version. The very Italian Alfa Romeo 156 GTA and 147 Cup joined the beautiful challenge between the rear wheel cars, representing the front wheel drive models very well.
