The 2016 edition of Coppa d’Oro delle Dolomiti took place from 21st to 24th of July and Cortina d’Ampezzo (Italy) once again has been the hub for lovers of vintage cars and classic regularity racing.
The Coppa d’Oro delle Dolomiti, which took place ten times (1947 to 1956), was an instant success because of the spectacular landscapes of the Dolomites,
mountains that change colour as the hands move round the clock (a Unesco Heritage area since 2009). The race was launched by Ferruccio Gidoni, president of AC Belluno,
and its most famous testimonial was the legendary Tazio Nuvolari, who was guest of honor at the first races.
This year proved to be an increasingly international event with teams from over 12 countries and a route that runs through Austria, in the tourist location of Lienz, for the first time ever.
The drivers’ skills have been tested by a route filled with charm and various difficulties, more than 500 km in length and taking in Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige,
Austria and back to the town known all over the world as the "Queen of the Dolomites", Cortina d’Ampezzo.
The race was attended by 120 historic cars, for Cuervo y Sobrinos have raced two crews:
the President Marzio Villa and his wife Maria Cristina Abello with an AC / Aceca of 1955, Vincent and Marie Tourneur with a Delahaye 135S of 1937.
The winner Giovanni Moceri with an Alfa Giulietta TI of 1961 has been awarded by the President of Cuervo y Sobrinos Mr. Marzio Villa
with a timepiece of the collection dedicated to the racing world: Historiador Cronomundo - Racing Collection.
