The “Rievocazione” of the “Gran Circuito del Sestriere”, 300 km up and down alpine roads and five high altitude passes (among which the legendary “Colle delle Finestre” ),will be held on the 6th and 7th of July, while the “50 anni di Vespa Rally” celebrations will start on Saturday 7th and end on Sunday 8th with an International Vintage Rally under the aegis of the Registro Storico Vespa.
The Rally model’s anniversary celebration begins with the unleashing of its sporting spirit. Participants who enter the “50 anni di Vespa Rally “ event have three “serious rider options” (one is free !) for Saturday 7th, all connected to the 2018 Gran Circuito del Sestriere (see the English page on www.grancircuitodelsestriere.it for full details):
For the first time in Grand Circuito history, they can also apply and run the timed event (120 euros), with full guest kit, en route refreshments and meals included, and be awarded rankings and prizes in an exclusive Vespa Rally category
They can apply to enter and run the Gran Circuito event in “Tourist Mode” (120 euros), with Touring kit, en route refreshments and meals included, but no time checks and no rankings. Those who complete this “untimed run” will be awarded a certificate (“brevetto”)
They can follow the run as private tourers: no entry fee, no guest kit, no en route refreshments, no meals. Private tourers may however buy extra meals tickets and join the rest of the riders in Friday evening appetizers and in the Saturday Gala dinner and prize-giving.
