  • Brit team victorious on Modena Cento Ore rally!

    Brit team victorious on Italian rally!

    11 Jun 2015

    An all-British crew has taken the top going on the Modena Cento Ore – a 1200-mile tour of Italy which

    includes regularity sections and races at the region’s most challenging circuits

    – for the second year in succession.

    Phillip Walker and Howard Redhouse drove their 1962 Jaguar E-type to victory

    ahead of stiff competition from 160 other competitors, with 16 manufacturers and

    18 countries represented.

    The post-1965 category was won by a 1973 Porsche 911 RSR, while a

    ’59 MGA Twin Cam took the laurels in the regularity sections.

    A '54 Porsche 356 Pre-A Speedster also picked up an award. 

    Among the entrants was 1974 Football World Champion Rainer Bonhof,

    who paired Albert Otten in a 1939 BMW 328. 

    The total value of the field was well in excess of €100m, but that didn’t stop

    owners from putting their classics through their paces on 13 special closed-road

    stages, four circuit races and 22 time checks throughout the six-day tour.

    Organisers were celebrating the 15th anniversary of the event, which this year

    began in Rome and finished in Modena, taking in a winding route through Lazio,

    Umbria, Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna, in addition to the Imola, Mugello,

    Vallelunga and Magione circuits.
