The Modena Cento Ore 2015 was staged June 2-7 in central Italy, starting in Rome and finishing in Modena. The organizers planned a special edition for the 15th anniversary of the rally, with four circuit races and 13 special stages among the highlights.
Created in 2000, the ‘Cento Ore’ is a Competition or Regularity rally held on scenic routes with circuit races, hillclimbs on closed roads and unique evenings in great locations, all sewed together with touristic and cultural hints. The invite-only event is reserved for vehicles with historical and sporting value, built from the 1920s to the 1970s.
To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the rally, the 2015 edition saw the crews driving for four days on the most beautiful roads that connect Rome, Perugia, Florence and Modena, with four famous circuits (Vallelunga, Magione, Mugello and Imola) and thirteen special stages on roads closed to the public. Both Competition and Regularity sections shared the same route, circuits, uphill timed trials and evenings.
The Modena Cento Ore Classic 2015 saw the 1962 Jaguar E-Type of Walker-Redhouse take victory in the Competition section for cars built until 1965 for the second consecutive year, while the crew Denat-Remnant in a 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR won first place amongst the cars from the G/H/I periods. The adjusted classification saw the team of Tourneur-Fiat win with their 1954 Porsche 356 Pre-A Speedster. In the Regularity section, the first place goes to crew Smith-Crew in a 1959 MG A Twin Cam, with the teams classification dominated by the German Scuderia Carolus Magnus from Aachen, the one with the most crews, both in the Competition and in the Regularity section.
