There is one week left to take advantage of the early booking application for the Modena Cento Ore Classic 2015, held in Italy. The event takes place June 2–7, with a route that begins in Rome. Keith Martin will return as a participant. If you are planning to attend, send an email to Keith and join Team SCM.

Next year marks the 15th Anniversary of the race. Born at the dawn of the new millennium, the “Cento Ore” will celebrate this occasion with a one-off special edition from Rome to Modena.

The event will start June 2, with the opening soirée in the heart of the Eternal City. Four circuit races in Vallelunga, Magione, Mugello and Imola and a dozen hillclimbs will make the competition a benchmark.

The route will also include some of the greatest scenic roads of Italy, amazing cities such as Orvieto and Arezzo and overnight stops in the heart of Perugia and Florence, where cars will sleep in the central Ognissanti Square for two nights and where the Gala dinner will take place, as usual in a magnificent setting.

As always, the chequered flag will wave in Piazza Grande, the Cathedral Square of Modena, where the final dinner and the Awards’ Ceremony will take place. Live music and great wines will accompany the festivities.
