Eberhard & Co. has renewed its presence as main sponsor and official timekeeper of the 28th edition of “La Leggenda di Bassano – Trofeo Giannino Marzotto“: the classic car race saw, once again, incredible vehicles with crews from up to 13 countries in the picturesque scenery of the Dolomites.
A unique event of its kind that is not only a regularity race, but a real experience, where time is punctuated and the brand knows how much a second can be decisive for a driver.
The event began on Thursday, June 22, from Villa Caffo Navarrini, in Rossano Veneto and concluded with the traditional parade in Piazza della Libertà in Bassano del Grappa, on Sunday, June 25.
Among the ninety “barchette” participants, unique cars paraded through the streets, such as a Maserati 250/200 SI from 1957 or even an impressive Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa from 1959.
During the car race, the models passed through Bassano del Grappa, making their way through Cavalese, crossing the port of Manghen, continuing to the ports of Lavazè, Pennes and Giovo.
Among the novelties of the route, the passage through Austria, with a visit to the highest motorcycle museum in the world and the night stop of the cars in a very special “garage”: the Vittorio, were among the most remarkable moments of the event.
Giannino Marzotto AWARD
In the lead and escorting the historic cars was Dallara Stradale, driven by the two-time World Rally Champion, Miki Biasion.
The event was also attended by Mario Peserico, Eberhard & Co.’s CEO, who awarded two chronographs of the Swiss Maison, two special Desk Clock from the Tazio Nuvolari collection, to the winning crew, the couple Gianmarco Rossi and Manola Antonelli that were aboard a Singer Nine Sport from 1933 and have been awarded with the “Giannino Marzotto” award.
This Eberhard & Co.’s presence at “Abruzzo Gran Tour – Circuito di Avezzano” reinforced the
Maison’s bond with the world of vintage motoring and with those events where the passion for this
field is shared with a sense of authenticity.
