A truly exclusive rally
The fact that the "Coppa delle Alpi" is something very special can easily be seen from the participation fee: You have to shell out a total of 5,500 euros to be included in the exclusive circle of rally participants. Another decisive prerequisite is the age of the rally vehicles: they must have been built before 1965. In addition, the organizers have limited participation to 80 vehicles.
'Seeing and being seen' by the beautiful, rich and celebrities is en vogue in the summer. At the winter rallies, however, things are very different. Andreas Brix: "The focus is on sporty driving, but concentration, stamina and a dose of courage are demanded of man and machine." After all, the rally is driven without ABS, ESP and electronic aids. Heated seats and power steering are also usually missing from the vehicles driven by the daring rally drivers.
