The 100th Targa Florio

Palermo, 8 May 2016 - “A Targa Florio that returned to the beauty of its golden years, but the most thrilling moment was seeing all the great car racing drivers together, once again behind the wheel, in many cases in the cars they competed with in days gone by. I want to thank the Alfa Romeo Museum for this and the many collectors that wanted to make their treasures available to us.” This was the comment of the ACI Chairman, Angelo Sticchi Damiani, at the Floriopoli Paddock, on the 100th Targa Florio. 


The 100th Targa Florio has just come to an end and the winners of the Rallies  (Absolute Rally Championship, Italian Vintage Car Rally Championship) and Targa Florio Classic have been announced. 

The winners were greeted in a Piazza Verdi packed with fans and enthusiasts.

As regards the Absolute Rally Championship, Paolo Andreucci and Anna Andreussi won the race in a Peugeot 208 T16.

While Erik Comas and Yannick Roche took the victory in the Italian Vintage Car Rally Championship in a Lancia Stratos HF.

The winners of this edition of the Targa Florio Classic were Giovanni Moceri and Daniele Bonetti in a FIAT 508 C from 1939, followed by Andrea Vesco and Andrea Guerini in a FIAT 508 S Balilla Sport dated 1934. Third place went to Mario Passanante and Anna Maria Pisciotta in a FIAT 1100 103 E/ from 1955. 


Among the cars of the Targa Florio Classic 2016 there was one car already published on AUTOMOTIVE MASTERPIECES:

♦ 1938 Lancia Aprilia Sport Zagato Sanction II (2006) sn: 2385007


“The first times I tried the Targa Florio circuit with the Alfa, I thought it was impossible to do a race on these roads with prototypes that raced almost like in Formula 1. But then when a driver dons his helmet, he starts to race. I felt great exhilaration in doing tight bends at high speed and seeing people in front of me suddenly appear in and disappear from the mirrors." This was what Helmut Marko had to say yesterday during Passion Day – an event organised to bring together the general public and drivers who took part in today’s Historic Speed – at Teatro Al Massimo.
