The Vesco-Guerini crew won first place, followed in order by Di Pietra - Di Pietra and Margiotta-Perno.
Great success for the sixth edition of Terre di Canossa,
with 105 crews representing 16 countries and 29 manufacturers.
A ‘pink’ edition, due to 35% of the participants being women, but also ‘green’ and eco-friendly. The smiles and enthusiasm of the participants made this edition of Terre di Canossa unique and memorable.
 
The sixth edition of Terre di Canossa took place from 14th to 17th April 2016, on the charming roads of Emilia, Liguria and Tuscany. It was characterised by an inimitable mix of sport, passion, tourism, culture, fine wines, gastronomy and unique evenings, with the utmost respect for the environment.
The organisers worked tirelessly for a year to create a perfect event, and the results were quite evident. Crowded squares, enthusiast participants and enchanting landscapes were the protagonists of these 4 unforgettable days.
 
The Rally and its Winners
The 85 timed trials heated up the competition among the 105 crews. The rally featured tough trials of every kind: long, short, located on straights or inside squares, uphill and downhill, along turns or hidden. Some of them were very fast, such as those on Mount Marcello, while others offered beautiful backgrounds, like those on Mount Serra, or unique and fascinating locations such as Lucca’s old walls.
 
As usual, the awards ceremony took place in Reggio Emilia inside the historical Sala del Tricolore, where the Italian flag was adopted in 1797.
Crew No. 41 Margiotta-Perno won third place in a 1965 Volvo PV 544 Sport, crew No. 8 Di Pietra-Di Pietra placed second in a 1938 Fiat 508 C and finally, separated by just 0,72 penalty points, crew No. 5 Vesco-Guerrini won first place in a 1934 Fiat 508 S Balilla Sport and a prestigious Eberhard & Co. ‘Tazio Nuvolari’ wristwatch.

February 15 2016 - Terre di Canossa 2016: we are turning six!

April 14th – 17th, 2016: these are the dates not to be missed for the wonderful sixth edition of the “Terre di Canossa”. It takes place along the charming roads of Emilia, Liguria and Tuscany and will, as always, feature its unique combination of sport, passion, landscapes, culture and unforgettable evenings.
As usual and to guarantee the highest standards of hospitality the maximum number of crews will be limited to just 100 cars. This includes our traditional tribute to Ferrari & Maserati.
 
The 2016 edition of the Terre di Canossa pays homage to the 70th anniversary of the Italian Republic, and to the 970th anniversary of the birth of Matilda of Canossa
The “patron” of our race, also known as the Great Countess, was one of the key figures of the Middle Ages. This independent and progressive woman played a pivotal role in the political scene of her age, and is remembered for her diplomatic and military achievements.
...
Some of the most appreciated features of the past editions have been confirmed: the Eberhard & Co. Trophy, in partnership with the main sponsor that will, as usual, award beautiful watches to its winners; the Pre-War Cup; the Tricolore Trophy, reserved to the non-priority drivers, who are always welcomed to this wonderful event.
Another returning highlight is the traditional homage to the Navy that will showcase one of the finest institutions of our country to the participants, especially the foreign crews.
 
The new entries of the 2016 edition, include the start from Parma, a lively cultural city which has been famous for its gastronomic, cultural and musical traditions since it was ruled by the Farnese.
 
The route of the race is about 650 km long, with 80 timed trials planned with the consideration of the manoeuvrability of older cars and the difficulties of using a mechanical stopwatch. The event will also feature an average speed trial with a special trophy, separated from the overall classification.
