COPPA D'ORO DELLE DOLOMITI 2016 - CONCLUSION
TOO FAST CAR (OR DRIVERS)
The Gold Cup of the Dolomites 2016 - was not a real rally. The specials was too few and short (sometimes very short). The rally was more like a transportation. The organisation was not to what we are used to. The only fun part was the night rally. Since our headlights was faulty - that part was a real challenge!
There were a couple of nice rigs to look at and nice acquaintances with other drivers and owners. For some time ago we did the Classic Marathon (also in Italy) organised by HERO Evenst - that was a state-of-the-art rally in comparision (on all levels).

COPPA D'ORO DELLE DOLOMITI 2016
The 2016 edition of Coppa d'Oro delle Dolomiti will take place from July 21st to July 24th 2016. The rally, which took place ten times (1947-1956), was an instant success because of the spectacular landscapes of the Dolomites. The race was launched by Ferruccio Gidoni (president of AC Belluno). The course has always been the same:
303,8 km starting out from Cortina.
The race was a very useful testing ground for the top drivers of the major car makers of the time, who found themselves up against "perfect strangers", as was customary in those days. Amateurs who were no less motivated than the big names in the sport and put up very stiff opposition.
For the 2016 edition, XK Racing will have one team in the contention. A Jaguar XK150 competition roadster from 1958. Piloting by Peder Silfverhjelm.
