Imola Classic 2013

6-7 April 2013
Imola Classic 2013
10/04/2013 -

At Retromobile’s Patrick Peter had assured us the Classic Imola 2013 would have been better in respect of the past season, and in effect, on Sunday evening when back home, we agreed that the result was wildly obtained both for organization and presence of cars. However, what left a bad taste in our mouths was to realise that in Italy the attraction for this type of event is reduced or almost not existing. Few, very few drivers and with stands decidedly left empty by those fans who, many times or too many ones, were showing off a competence and interest not translating into a real participation.

However, even if the standards of Spa Classic or Dix Milles Tours were not reached, the factors needed to crowd the stands were all present, included the first heat of Challenge of Historic Formulas, organized by Tommaso Gelmini, who took to the truck some of the most interesting Formula Junior and Formula 3 1000 cc, which marked the motor racing between the 60’s and 70’s. Beside them there were three categories as Peter Auto par excellence: CER, Sixties’ Endurance and Trofeo Nastro Rosso.

The motor racing circuit, despite its precarious conditions, has once more conquered competitors, who, among other things, were allowed to see the structure, at least from the outside, in the near future destined to host the museum of the circuit: a very pleasant structure from the architectural point of view. Pity that the elevator wasn’t included in the project so as to carry the cars into the exhibition area!

It was attracting the attention the exhibition of historic bicycles, organized in one of the stand of the circuit and the presence of a slot track, where children and, not only them, challenged one another; on the other end it was missing the area “ automobilia”, which usually distinguished Peter Auto’s events. Besides, it is worthwhile remarking the absence of a partnership with Alain Figaret, the famous Parisian stylist, thus preventing the promotion of a special clothing fashion style for the event.
