The International St. Moritz Automobile Week, from 8th to 17th September, traditionally concludes with the historic car uphill race, Bernina Granturismo. This year, the spotlight will once again be on Roarington and its simulators.
The formula, which could well be emulated by other events, involves offering competitors the chance to study the course by driving Pininfarina and Zagato Simulators prior to the official trials and the race itself. The ascent, digitally recorded in great detail and closely mirroring real-world times, presents a truly demanding challenge. A significant proposition for two good reasons: it eliminates perilous trials on open roads and familiarises participants with the route without having an impact on the environment.
The International St. Moritz Automobile Week will kick off as usual with the Kilomètre Lancé from Friday 8th to Saturday 9th September, followed by a series of truly unmissable events for classic car aficionados like us.
Below is the complete list:
Roarington Lounge, 2nd-17th September
