First entries, many confirmations

05 April 2017 Classic

The 101st Targa Florio, to be held in Sicily from April 20 to 23, will be a special edition, marked by the sign of continuity and also being the new, opening act of the second century of its glorious history.

ACI Storico and ACI Palermo are writing new chapters of “a Cursa”, to reinforce its historic value, to maintain the myth and to give the right meaning to its annualsuccess among its enthusiastic fans. The path was traced last year and the proof that the challenge is still alive and it is having great success comes from the many confirmations and the first entries for the Targa Florio Classicopening round of the Italian “Grandi Eventi” Championship. Alongside the organizers and all the people involved in the event there are the drivers and those that want to support and promote the race. 

Alfa Romeo and Abarth are the main sponsor of 101st Targa Florio.These two brands will dedicate special attention to “a Cursa” and they will be involved in different initiatives. While Alfa Romeo will follow closely Targa Florio Classic, Abarth will be closer to the Targa Florio Rally race.

The ambition to be part of the Targa Florio and the competitive spirit of each true motorsport and automotive lover lead many drivers to race the Targa Florio of the third millennium. Some drivers take part in it for the first time, some others come back every year on the roads between Palermo, the Madonie Mountains and the Mediterranean coastsjust like David Anglard and his 1968 Lancia Fulvia Zagato Competizione from the United States, but also John and Timothy Piccin with their 1952Ermini 1100 Sport. From Germany Christof Von Branconi and Ming Yuan from Shanghai on a 1975 Jensen Interceptor Convertibile and Watanabe Takashi e Sugiura with a 1957 Bandini 750 S Saponetta del 1957From Czech Republic Pavel Zabran and Pollak Jirka on their 1925 Tatra Special Targa Florio, then the Dutch crew formed byPieter Van Berkel and Carola Adrighem with their 1939 Fiat 500 Sport Zanussi. Among the Italian drivers Antonio Perfetti and Augusto Costantini on their 1956 Ockelbo Simca & Sport Barchetta and Sandro and Filiberto Brozzetti with a 1930 OM-665 SSMM Zagato built in 1930. And many more to come…
